Visit Worldwide Topsites

Wednesday, 19 February 2014

Have some popcorn to see this. Biela and Hagecius craters on the Moon.

Biela (76 km), is a crater located on the south- west of the Moon , and that's why on Earth can be seen only in oval shape due to his position , although it is circular , but not perfectly round , with a mountain peak located in center .

In the video , the crater looks tidy, perfect edge , but this is due to the Moon phase at that time, many of the " ugly " features of the crater being filled by dark.

Stuck to the south- west edge, is a satellite crater of Biela, Biela B (43 km). Biela A (26 km) and C (26 km) are found in the north- east of Biela , the latter being superimposed over the rim of Biela . The same situation is with the crater Biela W (16 km), on the western rim .

Finishing analysis of the region , I believe that video is quite successful , though many craters are hidden by the terminal ( top image) , which would amplify the beauty of the moonscape .

Images are processed in Registax in the video can be viewed here: Lunar craters Images Hagecius and Biela .
Here you can learn about the other craters visible in the video , Nearch (76 km) , Rosenberger (96 km) and Hagecius (76 km) ( center in picture ) .

You have to remember, the images are inverted , and the cardinal points must be seen as such, with the north at the bottom.
