The small interesting crater Krieger.

The area discussed in this article, is with few craters. All of them are located on Oceanus Procellarum. Krieger crater (22 km), is one of them. Krieger is a flooded crater with a slightly polygonal shape. It is a small crater, but there's an even smaller crater named Van Biesbroeck (10 km) on its south rim. I do not know what was the purpose of the International Astronomical Union, because they put an individual name for this crater and not called it as a satellite crater of Krieger, with a letter.

Other craters visible in these images: Nielsen (10 km), Wollaston (10 km), Angstrom (10 km), Artsimovich (9 km), Diophantus (19 km) and Prinz (47 km). There are also Mons Harbinger with Dorsa Argand.
