Description

Pythagoras is a prominent lunar impact crater located near the northwestern lunar limb. The crater has an oval appearance due to the oblique viewing angle. The well-preserved rim of Pythagoras crater has a wide terrace system, and a slight rampart around the exterior. Although generally circular, observers note that the crater outline has a hexagonal form. The floor is flattened, but with an irregular, hilly surface. There is evidence of landslips around the periphery. In the center is a sharp, moutainous rise with a double-peak that ascends 1.5 kilometers above the crater floor.
