Impressive craters Aristoteles and Euxodus Video by telescope

Spectacular pair of craters Aristoteles and Euxodus, located at the edge of Mare Frigoris, or "Cold Sea," can be easily identified even through binoculars.

 Terminator (the edge between light and shadow) in this video, falls on Montes Caucasus's peaks. Some of these peaks of the mountains are high enough to be visible in the sun.

 Observe and note the impressive crater Aristoteles, and note the smooth floor and its terraced walls. More than half of the crater is in darkness and the shadow of the eastern edge, is projected onto the floor. In the center of this crater are two small central peaks. The northwest edge is perfectly shaped.

Eudoxus, a deep crater, complex, with steep edges and terraces, ranging from 1 km higher in the north to 4.3 km to the southeast, is immersed in total darkness. Just east of the crater interior walls glow in sunlight. In the crater are central peaks, but not seen because of the shadow.

 The two craters, Eudoxus and Aristoteles, from different eras. The first dates from Copernican, and the second era Eratosthenian era.
