Blue Moon II

How’s this for a sight to wake up to?

Taken around 10:00am – Moon starting to set in the West. Sun has been up for nearly 4 hours.

The white dot just left of top is the crater Byrgius; the black one just right is the crater named Grimaldi; the larger dark circle below Byrgius is the Mare Humorum (Sea of Humors) – not because it is funny but because it was thought a ‘sea’ and so was thought to have moisture (from umor – Latin for body fluid); while the larger still dark area under Grimaldi is the Oceanus Procellarum (Ocean of Storms, continuing the moisture/sea theme). 🙂
