Tycho is a prominent lunar impact crater located in the southern lunar highlands…Tycho is a relatively young crater, with an estimated age of 108 million years…The ramparts beyond the rim have a lower albedo than the interior for a distance of over a hundred kilometers, and are free of the ray markings that lie beyond. This darker rim may have been formed from minerals excavated during the impact. (Source: Wikipedia).
