Caption: 19th century illustration of the crater Tycho and it's surroundings. Tycho Crater named after Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, is about 85 kilometers across and is clearly visible on our Moon's surface. The freshness of the crater and the rays of material radiating from it suggest that this is a young crater; there has been little time to erode it. Tycho Crater appears close to the southern polar region of the Moon. The circular crater is surrounded by a bright ejecta blanket. Rays of ejecta extend across the lunar surface
