I purchased your Volume 1 and am eagerly awaiting volume 2.  I was wondering if you had ever viewed or seen reference to a feature that I noticed just next to Piccolomini in the Southern Hemisphere. I noticed it in a picture I took 3/15 of the 7 day waxing phase  The crater Neander appears to sit atop or inside a feature that I call JanisBird (after my wife).  Have you ever seen this described or shown before?  It is obviously something like the lunar X as later phases do not show it as well.

 

Thanks

How are libration zones handled?

Hi Daniel,

 

Thank you for you kind words!

Volume 2 is in progress, I am about 25% ready with volume 2 as we speak.

 

On your image I do see what you are referring to with Jani's Bird.

I have not observed this myself to date, nor did I know of it.

I did look in Luna Cognita, volume 1, on page 9-8 the crater Neander is described, but also no mention of the bird like 'feature'.

 

Thanks for bringing this up, it is always interesting to share such observations and it's great fun to hunt down these pareidoliae.

 

Clear Skies!

 

Fred

Fred,

 

I also looked in Luna Cognita (a great resource!) and saw nothing.

 

I really like format of your book and the mirrored maps.

 

Thanks for the reply!

Hi Don, 

 

Sorry I missed answering you!

There are presently no Liberation zones in the book. 

Perhaps a good idea to include these. Will take this on my list!

 

Clear Skies,

 

Fred
