Gorgeous moon!

Submitted by jimwcoleman

I rarely ever photograph the moon anymore, as I am more fond of chasing down very dim comets and remote galaxies. But the moon was particularly beautiful tonight, so I grabbed a quickie photo.

Tonight, purely by accident, I happened to capture a spectacular feature on the moon that I've never been able to get before, and it got it tonight by accident. Do you see the Lunar X??

There are LOTS of hidden lunar features that are only visible at certain times - depending on libation and the position of the terminator. Some features only become visible when the sun hits them at just the right angle at just the right minute on just the right day. These are always fun to try to capture!
