These  days  l  do  not  observe  Moon.

For  recent  2 months  my  main  target  was  Venus  with  a smaller  refractor.

 

Tonight  l  observed   the  13day  Moon for  a  fun    and  l  found  a  interesting  feature  at  near  the  bay  of  Sinus  lridium.

The  Giant  face  was  easy  to  see  which  l  first  found   8years  ago  with  my  8"  refractor(size; 25km and once  l  posted)  and  tonight  l  found  two  animals  one  was  a  dog  the  other  was  a  lion.

Lion  was  very  much  resemble  as  real  animal.

On  the  contrasty  dark  base mantle  the  lion's  hair  looked  white ,  face  was  as  dark  as  base  mantle (graish  olive  green)

the  eyes,  nose,  mouth  of  the  lion  was  pitch  black  and  also  the  deep  valley  from  nose hole  to  mouth  was  black  too.

the  size  of  black eye,nose  was  l  think  smaller  than  2km.

 

l  sketched  these  features  ,specially  for  the  lion,  possibly  as same as  what  l  saw  in  the  x370  eyepieces  view.

Thanks  for  likes-comments.

So  interested  that   l  planned  to  observe  on  more  nights  further.

 

At  first  l  was  wandering  Moon   along  with  South  limb  where  were  many  sharp  beautiful  craters mountains,  then  after  30minutes  l  turn  my  eyes  to  the  North  and  when  soaring  over  the  north-western  plains  till  to  the  13day  west-terminater  l  found  a alien dog  with   half  buried  3 minute  craterlets on  his  back  and  in  turn  the  Lion.  

Above  observation  was  on  a  mid  seeing  night  with  my  powerful  320mm  refractor,  but  l  think  anybody  can  see  it  with  smaller  telescopes  on  a  good  seeing  night.
