Astro snapshots. Aristarchus crater.

I know these are a little blurry video captures, because of the Earth's atmosphere at that time, but the good part is that we can see the floor and part of the inner walls of the crater Aristarchus (40 km), which note that looks phosphorescent due to the increased albedo more much visible on other phases of the Moon on which the sunlight is beating at a wider angle.
