It was one day after the Full Moon, therefore hardly any shadow on the surface. Craters stand out best with some shadow to create an outline and give depth.
Full Moons are good for observing the large dark areas known as seas or "maria" (latin for seas) as well as a few craters with bright rays of dust which spread out across the surface after the original impact.
|Crater Tycho - one of the brightest dust ray systems on the Moon|
|Mare Fecunditatis (Sea of Fecundity) - with crater Langrenus (centre). Also crater Humboldt on the right side edge standing out near the lunar shadow.|
|Mare Crisium (Sea of Crises) on the top right, along with crater Gauss along the Moon's edge.|
|Mare Serenitatis (left) and Mare Tranquillitatis (right) - Seas of Serenity and Tranquillity. The far right of Tranquillity is the location of the Apollo 11 landing site, where the late Neil Armstrong took his first steps.|
|Crater Copernicus (centre) and crater Kepler (bottom centre) - in an area known as Oceanus Procellarum (Ocean of Storms)|
Its by far the biggest and brightest object in the night sky and with so many interesting features, I guess its hard not like the Moon.
In honour of Neil Armstrong
