Farside Directory - Ridge
Section 143 is Rumford, which gets its name from the lunar
impact crater located on the far side of the Moon. It is
situated to the northwest of the large crater Oppenheimer
(Section 153), and to the east-southeast of Orlov (Section 142).
This crater lies across the eastern rim of the larger satellite
crater Rumford T. The perimeter is somewhat rounded and
polygonal in shape, with an outward protrusion along the eastern
edge. The inner walls have slumped along the eastern half to
produce a shelf along the sides. The interior floor has a lower
albedo than the surrounding terrain, and there is a small
central ridge near the midpoint. (Credit: Some of the
information used in the section feature descriptions was
obtained from Wiki.com. (Section 143 and this directory were
created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
