"Crater Tycho"

Tycho is a prominent impact crater located in the southern part of the elevated areas of the Moon, named after Tycho Brahe (1546-1601).
The lunar surface around Tycho is crammed with craters of various sizes, many of them even overlapping older ones.
Tycho is the youngest crater among the great impact craters on the visible side of the moon, its approximate age is 108 million years.
The crater has well-defined edges and free from wear that show the old impacts. The interior has a high albedo evident when the Sun strikes directly on it. The crater is surrounded by a distinctive system of radial marks and some of them reach up to 1 500 km.
The central peak rises 1.6 km above the surface.
