Luna Tilting Act 5/07/09
Before I packed up my belongings last night I took a few minutes to enjoy the wonderful tilting action of our Moon which allows us to see about 59% of the Lunar surface. Last nights eastern tilt was spine tingling to a lunar observer like me! On the very edge you will see Mare Marginis (L) and the ancient Mare Symthii Basin(R) with it's impact origin rim right on the lunar edge!. Can you see kitty's smiling face near Marginis? This astronomy thing always delivers the goods for me - how about you?
