View of Kepler crater by my telescope (video).

Kepler crater (32 km) , is not large in size , but despite this , it is easy to observe through a telescope , due to a high albedo rays on this dark plateau on Oceanus Procellarum which are spread in all directions and Mare Insularum . Can be easily distinguished and because the craters in this area are few in number.
There is also a crater on Mars named after Kepler .

In this video , the Moon was captured at perigee , its distance from the Earth closer than usual at 360,270 km from us.
Eponymous of this crater, is Johannes Kepler, an important figure in the world of astronomy . He lived between the 15th and 16th centuries and was a German mathematician , astronomer and astrologer , known most for the laws of motion of the planets.
Kepler was a student of Tycho Brahe , and the strange partnership of the two revolutionized science, and forever changed the understanding of heaven.
Craters seen here , are Kepler and small craters scattered on Oceanus Procellarum .
