Mons Hansteen

Mons Hansteen - Moon: West Region
Mons Hansteen, is an irregular mountain that lies between craters Billy (46 km) and Hansteen (45 km). The complex form of the mountain can be seen when it is near the terminator as it here, otherwise it is a bright featureless triangular shape. Mons Hansteen is younger than either crater; it may be an extrusive volcanic mound. Billy is a flooded crater with a very dark floor; two tiny craterlets are just evident. In contrast Hansteen has a rugged floor with some rilles. The rille Rima Hansteen snakes around the outside perimeter of the crater from 1'o clock – 3'o clock. South is up.
