Moon craters Licetus and Heraclitus at terminator new
      #3517947 - 12/23/09 01:51 PM Attachment (55 downloads)

At the crater scattered south part of the moon I found Lecetus, Heraclitus an dCuvier worth sektching. Licetus and Civier show much of debris outside the crater.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Licetus and Heraclitus at the terminator. You have recorded the crater walls and shadows very nicely. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Uwe,
Nice sketch. I think we were almost looking at the same time at the same region of the Moon. I did yesterdag crater Maurolycus (see post), a little more NE from Licetus and Heraclitus!

Uwe,

Great sketch of Licetus, Heraclitus and Cuvier. You really got in there close. The steep wall on Cuvier looks very impressive.
I still waiting for skies to clear here.

Uwe,

Great views again and wonderful sketches of these three craters. I'm like Frank, hoping, waiting for the skies to clear.

Thanks,
