Spurr (crater)


Spurr is an impact crater on the lunar front side in the plane of the Palus Putredinis, southeast of the great crater Archimedes.

It is a so-called ghost crater, that is, it is very flat and largely flooded up to the edge of the south and east.

The crater was officially named in 1973 by the IAU by the American geologist Josiah Edward Spurr.
