Unusual crater Schiller

Unusual crater Schiller - Moon: South West Region
Rukl 71, VTM E14
Schiller is an unusual elongated crater (179 x 71 km) formed by at least two impacts. Its lava-flooded floor is peppered with small craterlets. Unlike some other flooded walled plains, the floor is not particularly dark. The crater is named after German Monk Julius Schiller (d. 1627), author of the 'Christian Atlas of the sky' (Coelium Stellarum Christianum) published in the year of his death. The prominent crater to the LHS is Bayer (47 km).
