Sinus Iridum (Bay of Rainbows) looks fantastic at this phase of the Moon with its glowing arc shaped Montes Jura mountain range. Is this not the Jewelled Handle effect phenomenon described in Sir Patrick Moore’s moon books and depicted in 2001: a Space Odyssey that I have read reference to? There is also a very nice triangle shadow from the protruding part of the range from Promontorium LaPlace cast on the crater floor. Very nice view! cool.gif
