Fizeau is Ridge Section 162 and named after the prominent 111
km impact crater that is located on the lunar Far Side side,
in the southern hemisphere. Nearby craters of note include
Minkowskih to the west-northwest, and Eijkman (not
marked) to the southwest. The inner wall of the crater rim is
multiply-terraced in the northern half, while the southern rim
has a shear inner surface leading down to slumped deposits on
the crater floor. There is a small but prominent crater lying
across the southwest rim, with an inner surface that forms
terraced steps covering most of the interior. There are also
smaller craterlets on the rim to the northeast and
west-southwest. The interior of Fizeau is relatively flat
beyond the terraces, with only a few low rises in the
northwest section of the crater and a central peak near the
midpoint. Only a few tiny craterlets are located on the floor.
