Tesla_(crater)

Tesla (crater)

Tesla is a lunar crater that is located on the Moon's far side, just to the southeast of the larger H. G. Wells crater. About a crater diameter to the southwest of Tesla is Kidinnu crater, and to the southeast is Van Maanen crater.

This is a circular, bowl-shaped feature. There are a pair of small craterlets in the southern inner wall, but the crater is otherwise free of overlapping craters of significance. Only a few tiny impacts mark the floor and remaining sides.

Satellite craters

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 Tesla crater.
