Next to the lunar south pole, Tycho crater, named after the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, is one of the formations of our natural satellite most easily observed with the naked eye during a full moon, mainly due to its enormous system of rays that extend for more than 1,500 km and were formed during the impact, about 108 million years ago.
Below the main photo we have the altimetric profile from point A to point B, in a simulation made in Quickmap, highlighting the different heights between the edges and their distinct central peak.
