General Astronomy Video Petavius crater ​​by astronomical telescope

These videos present crater Petavius ​with stabilized images.

In clip number one, Petavius ​​is filmed closer. At 00:03, I slowed down the image, to analyze how the picture goes black by a shadow with a high speed. So in this video can be a unidentified flying object, or a bird could not be focused because of the speed.

The huge crater Petavius ​​floor, is seen a "rille", which starts from the center of the crater, and ends at the edge of the south-west. Overall, looks like a clock showing 20:00.

In clip number two, is Petavius and ​​craters surrounding it, as Snellius southwest of Petavius​​, Wrottesley, lower edge attached to its northwest, Vallis Palitzsch, Hase, and craters at boundary between light and shadow on the right of the video, such as Legendre and Adams, of who we see only the edges are in light, and their floor is dark.
