W. Bond and Meton lunar craters

W. Bond is an irregularly shaped crater located on the north side of the Moon, north of Mare Frigoris. It lies east of the crater Epigenes (55 km), and south-west of Barrow (93 km). Along the southwestern edge is Timaeus (33 km).
What remains of the outer edge of W. Bond has been eroded and reshaped. South-eastern edge is relatively well defined, but the rest is irregular, jagged, and not very prominent.
The interior is flat compared to the region where is locared, although there are sections of rough terrain near the north edge. In the center is a narrow rille crossing to the east side. In the interior,to the east, is W. Bond B, a circular crater-shaped bowl. W. Bond C is located on north-east.

Meton (122 km) crater is composed of several merged craters flooded with lava, forming the remnant of some walls in the shape of a clover leaf. Barrow (93 km) is attached to the south-west side. To the northwest is the crater Scoresby (56 km), and at east are Baillaud and Euctemon. Meton C (77 km) is south of the crater is Meton.
