Note: This article is named "Aristarchus (crater)" as part of the convention for the large number (2400+) of lunar crater articles, some of which needed disambiguation from craters on the Earth, Mars, Mercury or elsewhere, not to mention like-named pages on other topics. — RJH (talk) 21:11, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Suggestions for improving to A class
There are a few details that could be added to this article to improve its quality from GA to A.
- I believe that the statement concerning the anorthositic composition of the central peaks is debated.
- There should be some reference to the presence of volcanic glass in the vicinity of the aristarchus plateau.
- There should be one or two images showing the abundance of TiO2, FeO, or Th, as obtained from Clementine, LP, or Hubble.
- A better image(s) showing the various sinuous rilles, cobra head, and central peak could probably be found.
- A reference for the 450 Ma age is needed.
- An image showing the locations of the Satelite craters should probably accompany the table.

GA Sweeps (Pass)
This article has been reviewed as part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Good articles/Project quality task force. I believe the article currently meets the criteria and should remain listed as a Good article.
A few comments I had, outside the GA review:
- Use of dazzling in lead seems unencyclopedic
- Is "Wood's Spot" a common enough alternate name that it should be added to the article's lead sentence?
- Could the two named craters be added to the secondary craters table? As I understand it, just because they're named doesn't mean they're not secondary craters.
