It lies to the south-southwest of the crater Hermite, and just to the north of the slightly smaller Froelich. To the east is Sylvester. The outer wall of this crater is nearly circular, with a well-delineated rim that is not significantly worn.

The interior floor is level, with a central peak that is offset just to the south of the midpoint.
