The last celestial object that I observed from the Naylor Observatory this morning was the waning gibbous Moon. I was scanning along the terminator with the 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain housed in the French Dome at approximately 5:45 UT (1:45 a.m. EDT) when I noticed that a lunar crater light ray was taking place in the crater Alexander. The ray was quite narrow when I first noticed it. I took a number of hand-held afocal iPhone images of the ray and continued to observe it and the Moon for another 20 minutes before I began closing down for the night.
I'll post a few more photos later today.
Monday afternoon: For some reason, most likely mental fatigue from lack of sleep, I confused Calippus with Alexander. I should have waited until I got some sleep to post my report. The Alexander lunar ray was one that I reported back in 2003!
