Goldschmidt (120 km) is a lunar crater located on the north, as we see it from Earth. The way in which looks makes it easily recognizable due to its wavy edge, but also because the edge of the west is a crater called Anaxagoras (51 km), crater which, although small, is responsible for the white rays scattered throughout the area.
These craters are actually circular, not oval, but because of their position on the Moon, are seen in this way.
