In this orbital view from Apollo 12, Kepler crater is the large crater at centre, as viewed from the south. It is surrounded by a skirt of high albedo material giving it a relatively light appearance. The edge of Encke crater can just be seen to the lower right. The maria to the west (left) is Oceanus Procellarum.
