Easily seen craters on the Moon
8/23/2012 5:56 PM
Yesterday on the "Eyes on the Sky" Facebook page, there was a great discussion among several of us about the craters Hercules and Atlas which were nicely positioned for viewing the tiny craterlet inside the larger crater Hercules - as well as how to do lunar photography with a telescope.
Today, the Moon's terminator has moved towards the lunar west, and three large, older craters are now illuminated: Catherina, Cyrillus and Theophilus. Note the screen shot I grabbed from this week's "Eyes on the Sky" video to highlight these three, but you can also use the "50 Features on the Moon" downloadable PDF chart to find these as well.
