Fontenelle. A crater on the Moon's north.

In this area, we notice a few features on the north side of the Moon, the Mare Frigoris and around it. On this little part, we find the crater Fontenelle (38 km) and its satellite craters, left, and a part of the crater J. Herschel (156 km) in the lower left.

Fontenelle, is a crater that can not be seen with the naked eye or with binoculars say the 7x40, but only through an astronomical telescope.

In its center we see a small hill, and its edge seems unaffected, but this ho is observed from a far distance.
