Clavius crater 7-11-2019

Recommended Posts

A lovely clear 10 day old moon hung in the sky last night. I hadn't intended to go out but it seemed rude not to. I had a lovely lunar session scanning the terminator.
Clavius looked fantastic and so thought I would try and sketch something of what I saw as the frost settled around me.

Excellent sketch! Well done! :) I see you managed to pick out not one but two alien monoliths residing in Clavius too! Clarke and Kubrick would be well pleased! ;)

Clavius is always irresistible to draw. Don't forget to spend time staring intently and count up how many craters you can see within it. Thanks for posting. Mike

Hi,

an excellent start of lunar sketching! Especially in our fast moving times, lunar observerving and sketches might be treated by some people as outdated. But for me it's a great time to come down and relax. I hope that you've already got addicted to it and we'll see more of your sketches here soon!

Clear skies!

Achim

Many thanks for the encouragement. I found it a nice way to chill out (in literal sense too :) ).
