Ibn-Rushd (crater)

Ibn-Rushd is a lunar impact crater located to the northwest of the larger crater Cyrillus. To the northwest is the crater Kant and to the north is Mons Penck, a mountain promontory. The crater is somewhat eroded with age, and the southern rim is overlain by a pair of smaller craters named Cyrillus B and C. The crater floor is relatively flat, and lacks a central peak. This crater was identified as Cyrillus B prior to being renamed by the IAU in honor of Muhammad ibn Rushd, a 12th-century Muslim polymath from Andalusia, whose many scientific accomplishments included analysis of the lunar surface.
