Bauman Impact Crater
Hexagonal Impact Craters
Bauman Impact Crater found on Earth and other hexagonal impact craters found throughout the Solar System.
Central Montana: Impact Crater Area
3-D Relief map by Kistler Graphics, printed 1977. The off-angle lighting allowed me to see the impact zone for the first time in 2001. DB
Central Region of the Moon
Group of hexagonal impact craters. Unnamed Crater (lower left), Albategnius (upper left), Ptolemaeus (lower right), Alphonsus (middle right).
Central Montana Impact Basin
Hexagonal inner ring and outer vee shaped chevron fracture zone to the south. And further south is the great Yellowstone Volcano.
Ganymede; a moon of Jupiter.
Gula and Achelous, hexagonal impact craters; with inner ring and outer ring. Also a chevron fracture zone? Or just ejecta splatter?

Rebound Cone: N.&S. Moccasins and Judith Mtns. - Singular Fold of Snowy Mtns. - Ring of Fire: to the West and clockwise - Little Belts, Highwoods, Bearpaws, Little Rockys, and Bull Mtns.
Mimas; a moon of Saturn
A huge angular impact crater. Is it hexagonal, pentagonal, or square? Notice the other impact craters, some are circular, some are angular.
Callisto a moon of Jupiter
The hexagonal Tindr crater and others.
Iapetus a moon of Saturn
Some angular impact craters and some circular. Notice the walnut like ridge. And the huge hexagonal impact basin, complete with inner hex and outer chevron.
The planet Mercury
Heavily cratered. Some craters are circular and some are angular.
The dwarf planet Ceres
Notice the two lights in the center of the angular crater. These are a mystery.
