Home Forums RAC Main Forum General Discussion Observing tonight? Re: Observing tonight?


    Dean, Thanks for the heads up.  I set up the scope on the deck and saw Mare Orientale (Eastern Sea) which I believe was found and named by Patrick Moore.  I then took a shot at Rupes Recta and found that around Purbach and also looked at Rima Birt between craters Birt E and Birt F.  Will Rupes Recta look better tomorrow night when the terminator is closer to it?  I wasn't able to see the shadow.

    Saw Plato, rays of Kepler and Copernicus and Sinus Iridum – where did the other half of it go?  Whispy clouds now covering the moon. SB
