About Boussingault crater (131 km), I have discussed in other articles. It is located close to the southern terminal of the Moon, and in my opinion is more interesting than other craters, because the inner edges with a crater floor that gives the impression of a plate shape. It is the 77th largest on the lunar surface. If it would be located at a different latitude than now, it would surely be favorite for astronomers everywhere.

Terraced "double walls" Boussingault, and the impressive appearance of this 131 km diameter crater, is due to Boussingault A crater, 75 km in diameter, which is entirely within Boussingault. A's edge touching the northeast interior of the big crater .

In photos above you can locate the crater Boussingault in other positions, and the sun shining on it from several angles.
