Daubrée (crater)

Daubrée (crater)

Daubrée is a lunar crater that is located to the southwest of the Mare Serenitatis, just to the west-southwest of Menelaus crater in the Montes Haemus range. The small lunar mare Lacus Hiemalis lies along the southwest rim of Daubrée.

This is a horseshoe-shaped formation with the rim open to the northwest. The interior has been flooded by basaltic lava, leaving a level, featureless floor. The rim has a low cut through the southern end, and the eastern rim is attached to low ridges belonging to the Montes Haemus.

This crater was previously designated 'Menelaus S' before being given a name by the IAU.
