Taylor crater (41 km), is located on the east side of the Moon.
This crater has no area left to be smooth. Everything is steep, in and out of, although very worn around the edges and central peak.
Seen from above it, not oblique, Taylor is a circular crater, slightly elongated in the south. Its floor is very cratered with smaller holes. There are no other features that can be highlighted on the floor than they unevenness, which is widespread at all the craters in this area.
Taylor has several satellite craters, one of which, ironically, is bigger than Taylor, namely Taylor A. Among them we mention Taylor AB, A, and E, located on the south east of Taylor.
Not far from the crater, Apollo 16 mission took place at 116 Km of it.
Crater Delambre however, is bigger in diameter as Taylor. Delambre (52 km), has a sharp edge and is almost perfectly round. In the center show no central peak. Viewed as a whole above it, there is a small crater right in the center. Its inner wall is stretched almost to the center. On the northern edge of the crater is a small satellite crater called Delambre D.
