Sky was clear on this night and the eleven day old waxing gibbous Moon was high in the sky.
The atmosphere was calmer than predicted so I decided to sketch. On this occasion I decided to move away from the terminator and pick a bright ray target on the eastern side of the Moon near the limb.
Mare Crisium and crater Proclus looked like a good choice with the Sun high over them. Shadows were not visible but the bright ejecta rays were.
