Moon: King crater - Moon: King crater - The King impact crater on the hidden face of the Moon. This crater is about 75 km in diameter and 4 km in depth. Image obtained in April 1972 from the control module of Apollo 16. An oblique view of King Crater on the lunar farside, as photographed from the Apollo 16 spacecraft in lunar orbit. Note the interesting mountainous feature inside the crater. The coordinates of the center of King Crater are 120.5 degrees east longitude and 5.5 degrees north latitude. The two “” fingers”” of the central highlands in King Crater point towards the north - northwest. While astronauts John W. Young, commander; and Charles M. Duke Jr., lunar module pilot; descended in the Apollo 16 Lunar Module (LM) “” Orion””” to explore the Descartes highlands landing site on the moon, astronaut Thomas K. Mattingly II, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) “” Casper””” in lunar orbit. April 1972
