Tycho (85 km), is an "explosive" crater that wanted to stand out in the spotlight, and he succeeded. Whoever puts his eye in an eyepiece of a telescope, it is impossible not to notice the rays of light, and not make you wonder what is that crater. Seen from a distance, you can see some "spikes" that are scattered over long distances, very long, impossible to ignore, especially when the Moon it's full.

In these images, the crater is seen close, and these above mentioned features are not visible, but we still observe his dazzling brightness reflected from the material excavated by the impact that formed this great crater .To see what I'm talking about, see the last image with the Full Moon.
