Darney (crater)

Darney is a small lunar crater that is located on the region of the Moon where the Mare Nubium joins the Oceanus Procellarum. To the south is the lava-flooded crater Lubiniezky. The southern rim of Darney is attached to a series of low ridges that extend to the southwest.

This is a bowl-shaped formation with a small interior floor at the midpoint of the sloping inner walls. The crater has a relatively high albedo compared to the surrounding dark lunar mare, and the crater is at the focus of a small ray system extending for 110 kilometers.


Darney is a commune in the Vosges department in Lorraine in northeastern France.

It is located in the Vôge Plateau, around the location of the source of the river Saône. Darney is known for its forest of oak and beech trees.
