This paper presents observations on the structure and topographic character of the Sedan crater lip. The Sedan crater was formed by the subsurface detonation of a 100 kt thermonuclear device. The nature of this shock crater lip is tentatively extrapolated to the lunar shock craters and the relationship of these shock crater lips to the early exploration effort on the surface of the Moon is discussed.
