Furnerius crater is located on the southeast side of the Moon. It is easily confused with another crater called Cleomedes which is on the north-east of the Moon above the Crisium Sea. If you look at them say they are one and the same crater. Only when you see craters surrounding them we realize that something is wrong, because their distribution is different.

Between the two craters is a difference of only one kilometer in size. The first has 125 km and Cleomedes has 126 km in diameter.
