Quote:The plan was to try to do a quick sketch of a crater, but you know what they say about plans. I found a relatively empty crater to try to draw(or so I thought). I didn't know I was drawing Clavius at the time. I quickly realized that there's nothing quick about doing a sketch of the moon, and that there is more stuff up there than I ever imagined. I followed the moon across the entire sky, fixated on this one crater, I never ran out of little details to spot in there.Needless to say, I had to leave a lot of details out of the sketch, and my camera butchered the quality. Doing this sketch really renewed my appreciation for the most spectacular, and most annoying object in the sky.
