Visit Worldwide Topsites

Monday, 30 June 2014

Lunar seas filmed through a telescope: Mare Crisium.

We see here the northeast part of the Moon by 8-inch astronomical telescope, and we observe a number of about 6 basins: Mare Crisium, Serenitatis and Tranquillitatis, Fecunditatis, Nectaris and Spumans. Moon Phase helps us very much to see these basins in all their splendor.

The one that catches my attention the most, is Mare Crisium basin because it is isolated from other basins, with a round shape and dark color.

Bright craters with rays of a bright albedo, are scattered over the whole surface of the moon like stars.
At this time, temperatures in this area are very high.
