Aristarchus, but does not show up on the 4th day, more to the end of the cycle.

I got an image on the 4th but nothing close, the clouds thinned enough to grab a vid and get a good overall pic before the clouds solidified again.

Once again we are adrift in the lunar maria.

The original post of this thread is.

does anyone have photos of the 4 day old moon showing the dome of lights ?


So if we cannot stay on topic and stop changing the thread title you might see someone wandering by with a :lock2: in hand.
