Bohr is a lunar crater that is located near the western lunar limb, in the area that is affected by librations. It is attached to the southwestern rim of the larger Vasco da Gama crater formation, and to the southeast of Einstein crater, the later being named after a fellow physicist.
The rim of Bohr crater is worn and eroded, and a pair of small, bowl-shaped craters lie across the western rim. The rim to the northeast has been shored up by the adjacent Vasco da Gama crater, but the remainder forms an irregular ring of rugged ground. To the southwest of Bohr is a valley formation following a path in a north-south direction. This long cleft is most likely associated with the formation of the Mare Orientale further to the south.
