Crater Arzachel on the Moon.

Crater Arzachel (97 km) I think that was formed following a brutal impact on a very hard ground and the object came from a high angle, hitting straight on the Moon.

With these images, I improve my collection with this crater I want to capture it in as many lighting condiions I can.

Here Arzachel is near the terminal, with a half-shaded floor and in the center, the central peak is surrounded by sunlight.

An interesting feature in the southeast of Arzachel, is the satellite crater Parrot C
(31 km), here in full shade, which has a communication with another satellite crater of La Caille (68 km). We can see a groove as connecting both craters.
