Another interesting area is this crater to the west of Gassendi. This crater has a marked bright ejecta in its surroundings. The crater is 2.5 km wide and the ejecta is more than 10 km wide.
North West area of Gassendi is very uneven and has various smaller craters. Gassendi was once a potential target for Apollo 17 mission because it can offer highlands as well as the material from the Mare. But it was too difficult to move around so they went to Taurus-Littrow Valley.
Gassendi is also very famous for a rare phenomenon noticed by avid lunar observers, called Transient Lunar Phenomenon (TLP). They report a sudden brightness of light and color in and around Gassendi.
