Crater-Hopping: Observing the Moon on Day 14

  • Robert A. Garfinkle


Thirteen new named features emerge from the darkness of lunar night on this last lunation day before full moon. To the naked-eye observer, the Moon can appear to be a full moon in the months when the colongitude is close to 95° on this day, but look carefully and you will see there is a black sliver of the western limb that is still missing, as shown in Figure 19.1.
