Very nice article Phil. This is the exactly the kind of thing that makes astronomy very accessible for beginners. Great job, as always!

Thanks, John. Every now and then, it's nice to visit an old friend and maybe see it in a new way. :grin:

Great article ... however, you didn't include my favorite moon figure ... the rear facing basketball player!

Disclaimer: My moon image and my moon basketball player drawing.

I like it! Three years ago, I also discussed how the tale of Jack and Jill can be related in the maria as well. That article is available here

I needed a laugh today and this article was the perfect stimulus.

Over the past year or so of reading Phil's very entertaining articles I have located several interesting objects that I would probably never have otherwise looked for.
