Taken on Oct 30, 2020 of the lunar southwest limb
As you approach the limbs of the moon, the central peaks of large craters can be better viewed on their sides which gives you a good perspective of their heights, as seen in this photo.

Virtual Moon Atlas says that it is in the northwest quadrant, not southwest.
