Long Description:
"Carver is a lunar impact crater that is located on the far side of the Moon, due east of the Van der Waals walled plain. To the northeast is Rosseland crater, and to the south-southeast lies Kozyrev crater.

Despite some wear due to impacts, the wide inner wall of this crater still contains some terraces. There are several tiny craters along the rim edge and the inner walls, but no notable intersecting impacts. The Carver crater overlays the north-northeast rim of the old, heavily worn 'Carver M'. The interior floor of Carver contains a small central peak at the mid-point, and several small craterlets in the southern half. The remainder of the floor is relatively featureless, and has a diameter about half the diameter of the crater." - Wikipedia
