Petavius ​​crater is a complex fractured crater from Imbrian era. One of the rille is easy to see, although some are a challenge to observe. This crack as a "ditch", visible on the floor in pictures, starts from one of the mountain peaks in the center, and continues until the edge of the floor to the southwest. It is a crater that was fisured due to magma was pushed fron the inside.
Petavius ​​has a massive central mountain complex and more rilles well defined.
