BRIEF DESCRIPTION
0.2S 167.3W
Congreve is a lunar crater located on the Far Side of the Moon and lies across the lunar equater. It lies to the west-northwest of the massive walled plain Korolev (Ridge Section 122). To the southeast is the crater Icarus (part of which is in the SW corner of the Chart 121), and due north is Zhukovskiy (out of frame). Zhukovskiy Q is just in the frame at top center and the largest of the two small craters there. At upper right is Lebedinskiy P. The rim of Congreve is worn by impact erosion, particularly along the eastern side where a pair of small craters lie along the edge. The rim and inner wall are more prominent to the west and north, while it forms only a shallow ridge to the southeast. The interior floor is marked by a cluster of small craters in the northeastern part, and tiny craterlets scattered across the remainder.
