Eponym George K. Kunowsky, a German astronomer (1786-1846)

Kunowsky Crater is a large crater in the Mare Acidalium quadrangle of Mars, located at 57.1° north latitude and 9.7° west longitude. It is 67.4 km in diameter and was named after George K. Kunowsky, a German astronomer (1786–1846).[1] Because it lies on a large flat plain, Kunowsky is easy to spot on maps and pictures.
