Lunar Crater Proclus   -->
Proclus is a fairly young crater that exhibits an interesting ray pattern.  Most of the ejecta from the impact that made this crater points to the NW, NNE and NE (toward Mare Crisium).  No ejecta is evident to the south west indicating that the angle of impact was very low.
