Huggins is an impact crater in the Eridania quadrangle of Mars, located at 49.4°S latitude and 204.4°W longitude, and is part of Terra Cimmeria. It is 90.0 km in diameter and was named after William Huggins, and the name was approved in 1973 by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) Working Group for Planetary System Nomenclature (WGPSN).
Nearby named craters include Cruls to the northeast, Rossby almost to the east, Campbell to the southeast, and the small Tycho Brahe to the west and the larger Kepler. West of Huggins is a feature known as Eridania Scopulus.
