Just a quick sketch of crater Aristoteles enjoying sunrise while waiting for the Geminids (me, not the crater).  Done this evening around 18:30-19:00 PST.  I hope for clear skies for all to enjoy this celestial show!

Regards,

Randolph

Hi Randolph,

that's a great sketch, especially bearing in mind that you just called it a quick sketch against getting bored while waiting!

Clear skies,

Achim

Randolph,

 

This is a very fine sketch of lunar crater Aristoteles. Well handled crater rim and shadows.

Saw a few nice Geminids last night and the previous night too.

Thirty minutes? In thirty minutes I could put down some stick figured aliens and their spacecraft. Beautiful work!

I was observing Aristoteles last night and I noticed a white patch near Mitchell.  I could not understand exactly what it was, I suspected it was a higher section of the crater wall.  Thanks to your sketch, I can see what I actually observed.

Many thanks.

Paul
