Lunar X - 2020 JAN 02

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Lunar X may be seen by telescopic observers in lands on either side of the Atlantic Ocean during the afternoon and evening of 2020 JAN 02 for an approximately four-hour period centered on 22:12 UT (16:12 CST). The X should appear as the Sun rises on the clustered rims of the craters Blanchinus, La Caille and Purbach, while a waxing Half Moon graces the sky.

This is something to check-off from your astronomical “to-do” list. Photos and descriptions of the Lunar X would be welcome additions to this thread.

Centaur, I've just put a post in Lunar Imaging with a pic of this phenomena with a quote of your own post.  It was nice to have your information re the phenomena which I sort of recalled reading in the last day or so when I was observing it.  Many thanks.
