Oblique View of the Lunar Crater Tycho
In this LROC NAC image we see an oblique view of Tycho crater taken looking west-to-east in the late afternoon. Tycho crater is ~82 km in diameter and the central peak rises some 2000 m above the crater floor.
Tycho is one of the youngest, most prominent impact craters on the Moon. It formed from the collision of an asteroid roughly 10 km in diameter about 108 million years ago.
