is the remains of a lunar crater
that has been flooded by lava
, leaving only the somewhat polygonal
circumference of the rim protruding just above the mare
. It is located on the southern edge of the Mare Frigoris
, to the west of the crater Aristoteles
. To the southwest is an arc of low mountains curving between the rims of Aristoteles and Eudoxus
. The floor of Egede is flat and nearly featureless, except for a few tiny craterlets. The surviving rim has a maximum altitude of 0.4 km above the surface.
By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Egede.
