A very impressive sunrise sequence.
It take a bit of good luck and persistence to accomplish this.
Best of all you sketching style is great.

Quite the series!!!! I think this is your best work yet. The way the changing light describes the topography and your representation of it is really captivating. This is one that really invites study.

Great idea and very well executed! You really seized the opportunity here. I like the Jan. 11th drawing with those dramatic shadows.
Did you use gray paper?

The images appear to show changing libration to me too. That is that the moon appears to have rolled downwards slightly each evening, having the effect of spreading the details out.
or is it just me?

The LTVT is the best moon planning (or reconstructing ) tool Ive ever used. I wish it were a little easier to set up . Some folks simply didnt bother installing it because its kind of roundabout to get it all up and running. It IS a fantastic tool however.
