Nobili is a lunar crater that lies near the eastern limb of the Moon, giving it a foreshortened appearance when viewed from the Earth. The crater overlies the western rim of the slightly larger crater Schubert X, and the eastern rim of this satellite crater is overlain in turn by Jenkins, resulting in a triple crater formation. To the south lies Gilbert.
Nobili is a circular crater formation with a worn, circular rim. The rim wall is smaller along the eastern side where it overlaps Schubert X. A small crater, Gilbert P, is attached to the southwestern rim, and there is a small break in the northeastern rim. The interior floor is nearly featureless, with a small double-peak formation at the center.
This crater was previously designated Schubert Y, before being given its current name by the IAU.
