Campanus (48 km), is an impact crater that is located on the southwestern edge of Mare Nubium. Mercator crater forms a pair with Campanus and the two craters are on Palus Epidemiarum. Campanus's rim is circular, with a passive bulge along the western margin and an active bulge north-west .The interior consists basaltic lava, leaving only a small central peak above the surface. The floor has the same low albedo as the surroundings, giving it a dark appearance. The name is given from Campanus of Novara (c. 1220-1296) a mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, and physicist who is best known for the elements of Euclid.
Other craters in these captures are Bullialdus , Capuanus si Ramsden.
