Eponym Raphael Bombelli

Bombelli is a small lunar impact crater that is located in the highlands to the north of the Sinus Successus. It was previously designated Apollonius T before being named by the IAU. The crater Apollonius is located to the east-southeast.

This is a roughly circular crater with a slight outward protrusion to the south-southwest. There is a small interior floor at the midpoint of the sloping interior walls, which is roughly one fourth the diameter of the crater.
