Pictet crater south of the Moon images.

Pictet (62 km) crater is in line with Tycho (85 km) and Saussure (54 km), located between the two. This, compared to the others, is more affected, with a blunt edge, and a bombed floor showing many small craters all over it.

Pictet name is given from Marc-Auguste Pictet (23 July 1752 - 19 April 1825), who was a physicist, chemist, meteorologist and astronomer in Geneva, Switzerland.
