Mare Humorum region

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

After, some serious rain period finally some clear skies. The Lunar illumination is now 82% en the terminator lays on the west side of Mare Humorum.

I am out with my SW heritage 130P with my 8-24mm zoom, this makes it a nice grab en go set. The first object that attracts my attention is Crater Aristarchus, nice deep shadow and contrasting bright crater wall. A little to the east flooded crater Prinz, only half of the craterwall is remaining after it flooded en there is a nice shadow coming from the crater wall. Little bit futher back to the east mountes Harbinger.

After that I moved to Mare Humorum, Gassendi and Gassendi A to begin with. The diamond ring crater. Three center peak boulders in Gassendi were easy visible. At the west side of Mare Humorum a giant wall Rupes Liebig, a realy nice object, I never noticed before. I followed it to the north, three more stunning crater Liebig G, F and just visible J. following the wall futher north with craters Mersenius D, E ans a very bright almost white C crater.

Mare Humorum brought me lots of new very nice objects, every time something new to discover on the surface of the Moon. It never bores.
