Dear observers, this night we had a hazy sky. Such a sky is often very stable. At the moon, II found this beautiful ghost crater. I did not find any name for it. For this reason, I wrote some of the coordinates. The next marked crater is Herigonius.

 

The crater is only partial limited by walls. The inner is slightly darker than the surrounding area. May be, I overemphasized this in the sketch.

 

 I used my 4-inch refractor at 144x
