Does anyone but me see Anoximander as a heart shape?
Yes, and now my wife's favorite Lunar feature. I suppose these were two connecting/overlapping craters, now flooded and linked. Is the northern portion also considered as Anaximander, as well?

David, Anaximander is in fact made up from 3 main areas, the southern part is "Anaximander D" 54x54 mile crater, the center part is "Anaximander" 41x41 mile crater and the northern part is "Anaximander B" 46x46 mile crater all of which are very old. Anaximander has been descried as a "wrecked formation", I guess you could say a broken heart.
