Here are my drawings of Hesiodus an hour apart showing the increasing ray phenomenon.

It was great to get out with the scope again after weeks of bad weather.

David ,wonderful the way you simplified the interplay of light & dark has an artistic look and feel much like the artist Miro or a even a  Calder, I love how you captured the motion of the ray of light.This is really cool

thanks for sharing.

David,

 

Very nice sketches of Hesiodus crater and the expanding light ray crossing the floor.

I like the simple approach and comparing the difference in lighting between the two.

Nice work!
