Last night I could not resist drawing Kepler (again).
The more one looks at this crater and its rays the more one appreciates the angle the asteroid struck the surface. One side has a general splatter but the opposite side has very definite rays which indicate the asteroid came in from left to right on my sketch. The other main crater is Encke. The crater with a ray going through it is Kepler C. Mike

your sketch is excellently showing the ejecta rays!

Clear skies

Good one Mike. I always think of Tycho when I think of bright ejecta rays, but Kepla is amazing too. Nice target to sketch and nicely done.

Thanks, only when I looked at my previous sketches did I realise I had done this on two previous occasions!!!! - must try something different.  I have never drawn Tycho. Mike
