Spurr crater

Spurr (crater)

Spurr is the lava-flooded remains of a lunar impact crater. It is located in the midst of the Palus Putredinis plain, to the southeast of Archimedes crater. Only the southern half of the rim protrudes significantly through the maria material, while the northern section of the wall has a resemblance to a ghost crater rim.

The formation was known as 'Archimedes K' before being renamed by the IAU.
