A Secondary Mystery
The unnamed crater in this image is almost exactly halfway between two nearby rayed craters: Qi Baishi and Hovnatanian. Qi Baishi is to the west and Hovnatanian is to the east - are these craters the source of the many elongated secondary craters in the scene? The orientation of the secondaries actually suggests another source to the north: the 225-km Mozart impact basin.
