Dear observer,

I was fascinated by Clavius in the early morning light and tried a sketch (February 3th, 19:15 UT)

Uwe,

Excellent early illumination sketch of Clavius. This sketch with the view you present here is one the the main reasons I am drawn to the moon and sketching the moon's ever changing features in the light. Just look at those illuminated crater rims on the floor. Fantastic! :bow: :rainbow: :bow:

Frank :)
