Astro Info: Rosenberger and Vlacq lunar craters. Telescope images.

Vlacq (89 km.), Is located on the south-east of the Moon. This crater is adjacent to the southeast edge of Hommel (125 km.), and north to Rosenberger (96 km.). Vlacq is more contoured than his neighbor Rosenberger, with a depth of 3 km. The other has a smaller depth of 2.2 km.

Rosenberger (96 km.) Appears oval when viewed from Earth, however, is almost circular .
This crater has been heavily eroded by numerous impacts so that the outer edge has become rounded and somewhat indistinct Satellite crater Rosenberger D, which is about 50 kilometers in diameter, is located in the northeastern edge of Rosenberger.

Crater name comes from Otto August Rosenberger (10 August, 1800 - 23 January, 1890) who was a German astronomer at the Baltic Sea in Tukums.
Rosenberger graduated from the University of K√∂nigsberg, and was noted for his study of comets. He won the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1837.

Towards the south of Rosenberger (image is inverted), is the crater Biela and Hagecius with satellite craters.
