NotesTerra Cimmeria is a heavily cratered region in the southern hemisphere of Mars, and Kepler is the largest of the many craters scattered across this area. Notable for the eroded ring of a smaller, older crater entirely enclosed within its rim, Kepler crater on Mars is not to be confused with the rather smaller crater of the same name within Oceanus Procellarum on Earth's Moon.
