Vallis Bohr is a valley on the Moon stretching due south of the crater Einstein. This wide cleft has a length of about 80 kilometers, and is radial to the Mare Orientale impact basin further to the south. The selenographic coordinates of this feature are 12°24′N 86°36′W / 12.4°N 86.6°W / 12.4; -86.6.

Vallis Bohr is a chain of secondary craters from the Orientale impact to the south.[1]
