Icarus is a lunar impact crater that lies on the Moon's far side. It is located to the west of the huge Korolev walled-plain, and less than two crater diameters to the east of Daedalus crater. To the south of Icarus is the smaller Amici crater.
This crater has a worn rim and a relatively wide inner wall. A small crater lies across the southern rim, and the side bulges outward slightly along the southwestern face. There is a central peak located near the crater mid-point. The remainder of the floor is relatively flat in the eastern half and slightly more irregular to the west.
By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Icarus crater.
