I fully agree with all above. This is probably the most impressive astronomy sketch I've ever seen. My wife actually couldn't believe it was a sketch, that's how amazed she was. I also concur that the accompanying story is very interesting. Thank you so much for sharing all this, Alex. And if I were you, I'd contact a couple of museums for contemporary art. They'd be daft to refuse your work.

Thank you for your comments.

Museum pieces! Gee, I dunno about that. I'm flattered at the thought and suggestion though.

There's one good thing about these pyroclastic deposits, as they are so dark they can easily be identified even during full Moon. I saw them clearly a couple of nights back, no mistaking them. Have a go at chasing them down now at full Moon - I find these quite remarkable.

Wow!, Fantastic Sketch! I've been away from CN for awhile. I'm glad I didn't overlook this sketch. Brilliant!
