Aristotle lunar crater by astronomical telescope 2012

Aristoteles (87 km) and Eudoxus (67 km) forms a prominent duo that can be seen by any telescope. The pair is visible when lit by the sun, even through binoculars, with well-defined shapes of light when fully lit. Of the two, Aristotle is much more impressive, with a slightly polygonal shape and large interior walls, showing some of the largest terracing than any crater on the Moon. Its floor, is relatively goodwith two peaks on the floor, in the south. South of Aristotle, the terrain becomes somewhat uneven.

Although Aristoteles (87 km) is bigger than Euxodus (67 km), it is shallow, with a depth of 3.3 km, compared to Euxodus, which is 3.4 km deep.

Aristoteles crater was named after the Greek astronomer and philosopher Aristotle (383-322 BC), the name of the crater was approved in 1935.
