Enjoying the Moon. Video of Tycho crater on the Moon by telescope.

Some of the largest mass extinctions of life on Earth could have been caused by cosmic catastrophes such as those in the Moon . But we do not really know how often are these events . Records preserved on the Moon might be able to help us as well.

With a very thin atmosphere , the Moon is collecting meteorites more than Earth, because of the large impact craters on it , making it to be a very good site digging for space debris containing valuable information about the past of our Solar System .

In the video shown below , we see craters on the Moon's south as Tycho (85 km) , Wilhelm (107 km), Hainzel (70 km), Capuanus ( 60 km ), and Lacus Timoris continuing onto south of Mare Humorum where are craters as Lee (41 km), Vitello (42 km ) or Doppelmayer (64 km), crater with a semicircular shape and a central peak in the middle, seen in the and of the video.

Tycho, is a lunar crater on the south , on which may be given full attention in times of Full Moon . At this stage it can be observed through binoculars , and also with the naked eye even if it is not large . With the naked eye we can not see the crater , but its light rays that spread on a large part of the southern hemisphere of the Moon , and in this way you can realize where it is , ie where the luminous intensity is the most intense , where all the rays unites.
When shooting this impressive crater , albedo which fills it and that on the outside, is alive and dominate the images.
