It seems while observing the moon last night, I have discovered a demon, just like the face on Mars, I will be heading to Geneva to accept my Nobel prize soon lol.

Surely others can tell me the correct name for this formation which I have magnified.

Must be near a burial ground, lots of skulls to the left also. Looking at the main image again it does remind me of Santi Claws..

Also, what scope type.. newtonian/refractor were you using, so I know which way up you were looking! Looks like you’re not in the UK, so *roughly* where you are would help, though I think I’m narrowing in on a likely location. L-R inverted image.....

Hello, that night I was just using my phone to capture random images, I thought I would mention that to explain the bad quality. Having said that, the images were shot this past Friday at 10:05pm from Stouffvile Ontario, Canada which is just outside of Toronto Canada. The scope used is an Orion Eon 115mm triplet 805mm focal length. For those shots I was almost certainly using my 9mm Morpheus combined with the TeleVue 2.5x powermate but, I may have used the zoom feature on my phone to bring the artifact in a bit closer.

Simulated vs yours, Wurtzbauer. Pitatus and rima Hesiodus lead me to it.

Yours kind of looks like an Orc from LOTR, now my question is, will I see this face again anytime this crater is visible? will it only be visible exactly as is in my original image when factors such as position of moon/earth relative to sun are exactly the same again?.

Perfect. Let them wait in Stockholm 😉😄.

A nice example of pareidolia, I love it! Did you see it visually or only afterwards on your picture?

It caught my eye fairly quickly one I had put in my 9mm eyepiece, from then on it became so evident that it distracted me from the rest of the surface, lol.
