Two photos taken at an interval of one lunar month with a difference of only 4% of the illuminated phase accurately demonstrate the importance of libation in lunar observation.
With just another 2 liter in the south latitude, we can easily see the central peaks of the Hausen crater in the February photo that are not visible in the January photo.
A good lunar observer or even a careful photographer will certainly not miss this opportunity.
These little things make the Moon one of the most interesting stars in the solar system, just know what to look for!
