Hase is a lunar crater that is located in the rugged southeast part of the Moon, to the south-southwest of the prominent Petavius walled-plain. The Palitzsch crater and Vallis Palitzsch is attached to the northeast rim of Hase.

The rim of this crater has been damaged and eroded by a long history of subsequent impacts. The most prominent of these is 'Hase D', a comparably-sized crater that has overlaid the southern rim — leaving only a low rim between the two formations. 'Hase A' is a small crater that lies in the interior of Hase, near the irregular northern rim. The remainder of the floor is rough and irregular.

To the southeast of 'Hase D' is a linear rille designated Rima Hase. This is a wide, shallow formation that follows a line to the southeast.

Satellite craters

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 Hase crater.
