Visit Worldwide Topsites

Video frames by astronomical telescope. Aristoteles and Euxodus lunar craters.

These are images taken by the telescope, I have captured northern craters on the moon. The most highlighted are Aristoteles and Euxodus, located south of Mare Frigoris. The two craters form a distinct pair for observers through a telescope.

As a feature of Aristoteles (87 km), we see a small crater on the eastern edge directly attached to it, called Michell (30 km). To the west, a mountainous arc can be seen between the two craters, which I guess is part of Montes Caucasus, south of Eudoxus (67 km).

Aristoteles crater is believed that occurred in the Erathostenian age. Since the central peaks are not located in its center, that makes us think that the cosmic object that produced it came in an oblique angle.

In the first images, the landscape takes us to the lunar horizon from Aristoteles to the edge of the Moon, where we can see lined up several small craters to northeast, starting from Aristoteles, as Galle (21 km), and its satellite craters Galle C ( 11 km), G, and B (7 km), Democritus A (11 km) and last, larger Democritus (39 km).

In the picture below are labeled craters and other lunar features in the region. To better understand this photo, you should note that the label with the name or the letter of larger craters could be found at their center, and on the small craters, you should find them around them, usually above.
