Wednesday was the day of the latest Full Moon… unfortunately the lunar eclipse visible from Australia was at 5:30 in the morning so naturally i missed it! 😉 So here’s a view of last night’s slightly past a Full Moon.
In this image you get a much stronger idea of our Moon as a member of our planetary system family: the surface seems to have dark oceans, seas, bays and lakes between the lighter continents and islands with their mountain ranges, plains, valleys and impact craters (or large volcanoes) perhaps? 🙂
The two craters just above the midpoint of the Moon’s left side in the photo are amongst the largest impact craters we can see dwarfing anything on our own Earth.
