Lucian (crater)

Lucian is a tiny lunar impact crater that is located in the northeastern part of the Mare Tranquillitatis. The nearest named craters are Lyell to the east-southeast, Theophrastus to the northeast, and Gardner to the north-northeast. A little farther to the north is Maraldi crater. Lucian was previously designated Maraldi B before being named by the IAU.

This is a circular, cone-shaped formation with a negligible interior floor. It has not been significantly degraded by impact erosion.
