Klaproth and Casatus, are two craters located on the extreme south of the Moon.
Casatus (111 km), is distinct, with well-defined edges. It has a small crater on it's floor, with a bright albedo, called Casatus C (17 km), which you can see in pictures.
Casatus, is superimposed over a portion of the south of Klaproth (119 km), and because of this, Klaproth not have a circular shape. Notice how high and uneven is this region. Similar to this region is almost all the invisible Moon from the Earth.
Distance of the Moon from the Earth then, was quite large, about 400.000 km.
