Evening,

 

I'm trying to find any kind of map that covers what you can see with eastern libration and can't really find anything beyond identifying Mare Marginis, Goddard, and Neper. I know crater Al-Biruni is there but I can't pick it out or anything else beyond Goddard. Does anyone have a link or map to that area?

 

Thanks,

 

Guy

Would SkySafari give you that, if you bring up a moon closeup on that date and time? I’m thinking it should.

Try this LRO Quickmap link that I centered on the region in "Globe" mode.  You can zoom in by scrolling the mouse wheel, and as you do, more nomenclature will appear.  Also, clicking and dragging will pan, and some combinations of Cntrl or Shift click will rotate.  Takes some playing around with to get the controls down without getting frustrated, but you can literally explore any region of the Moon from any angle.

Nice! I didn't have that link, and it is very helpful, thank you. I was able to pick out two smaller Goddard craters and, I believe, Zasyadko, and updated the photo above.
