The craters Hercules & Atlas (above left center) are fairly close together (about 30 km), but Hercules lies in Section 14; Atlas in Section 15, both in the  NE quadrant. The subject of this web page is Hercules which is a very prominent crater with dark areas on its floor. It is 69 km wide and has a very noticeable crater inside it. The image by Lunar Orbiter 4 provides awesome detail. Be sure and refer to the separate page for the crater, Atlas.
