Number of craters on Moon

How many craters are there on Moon?

30000

Not too many people know that on the side of the Moon that is visible from the Earth are 30,000 visible craters.  Needless to say, there are many more small craters there which we cannot see.  The main idea is that these craters are smaller than 1/4 of a kilometer in diameter.  It is important to know that the crater Bailly is the largest crater on the visible side of the Moon.  Believe it or not, it is more than 300 kilometers in diameter.
