Looks like there is a bright star like illuminated peak beyond the terminator in the Aristarchus Plateau There are 3 smaller dimmer light inside the shadow of crater Herodotus (?)
Using 9.5 inch f/15 Alvan Clark Refactor with 21 mm plossel eyepiece (Televue)
May have images later.
9:18 pm EST It looks to me that the brightest is morning sunlight on Mons Herodotus. (possible)
9:27 pm EST The 3 dimmer ones are higher bright peaks between Schroter Valley and Montes Agricola. That whole region is in darkness with the the exception of parts of Montes Agricola illuminated.
By far the most interesting sight I have seen on the Moon.
To my eye ,libration is favourable for the Northern part of the Moon. Tycho and Clavius are close to the southern edge of the Moon's limb.
9:46 PM EST Last observation note. A 6th dim high peak is just beginning to shine near the brightest illuminated peak (which I believe is Mons Herodotus) .
Well I hope some of you are viewing the Moon now or are imaging.
