Mariotte (crater)

Mariotte is an elongated crater that is located on the far side of the Moon. This formation is located about one crater diameter to the southwest of the smaller Das. This crater is longer to the southeast by about an extra 5 km, giving this feature an egg-shaped outline. The outer rim is sharp-edged and little eroded. The interior floor is uneven, particularly toward the southeastern end. To the southeast of Mariotte is the large crater Chebyshev.
