Keeler Crater is a crater in the Phaethontis quadrangle of Mars, located at 61.0°S latitude and 151.3°W longitude. It is 95.0  km in diameter and was named after James Edward Keeler, and the name was approved in 1973.[1] The first image below shows the relationship among three craters that are near each other. Keeler Crater is to the North of Trumpler Crater. After Keeler was formed, a later impact formed Trumpler Crater, and in the process destroyed part of Keeler.
