My Astronomy Class - Lunar Surface Features

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Waxing moon makes a lousy time to go looking for deep sky wonders, so let's concentrate on the lunar surface!

For beginners, try the Lunar Sketching Activity. This will familiarize you with basic lunar maria and major features. For more experienced observers, try the Lunar Surface Features Activity. This second activity requires a small telescope and moderate power (60-120x); it challenges you to seek out 10 distinctive lunar features and display them in a series of just 3 sketches. You will have to search carefully to get all 10 in just three sketches!

For those of you with camera - you can try the same activity - just see if you can get these 10 features in just three photos of the lunar surface!

Let us know how you are doing - questions and comments always welcome.

Dan

As always, these resources are really interesting and helpful - I will try them at home and with my school astro-club.
