Can anyone identify this area of the moon?

Recommended Posts

I have looked on my lunar map and elsewhere but cannot identify this part of the moon.

Any ideas?

It's part of the Bay of Rainbows (Sinus Iridium) on the left hand side. Here is a pic showing the "promontory" sticking out into the mare:

My 81 year old wingman who helped me take this image was keen to know so he could add it to his records. Many thanks. I will let him know.

That's a lovely image! It's always interesting to know what telescope was used to take the pic. Your 81 year old wing man should be very proud! :thumbsup:

A quite spectacular display of wrinkle ridges!

Well done guys

I use an APP called LunarMap Lite

Sinus Iridun, stands out in the APP

It is a very good image, well done!

May I suggest you download Virtual Moon Atlas, by Patrick Chevalley and Christian Legrand, an outstanding piece of software.
