Visibility III / V

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Pythagoras is located near the north pole of the moon. It has distinctive terrace-like embankments such as Tyko and Copernicus. The diameter of the crater is 130 km. The central mountains cast long shadows through the bottom of the crater all the way to the curb. The philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras (580-500 BC) "shaped" a flat earth into a sphere. (No one has to worry about falling over the edge anymore;)
