The elongate crater Torricelli near the north margin of Mare Nectaris was probably formed by two simultaneous impacts as indicated by the partly developed septum at A. The overlapping clusters of small craters at B, C, and elsewhere around the rim were made by secondary impacts of ejecta from the large crater Theophilus more than 150 km to the southwest.    D.H.S.
