Grimaldi

Submitted by: Carol Lakomiak at Tue Dec 23 04:22:01 2003 UTC

Dark Grimaldi, peaked Hevelius and deep Cavalerius are on the center left limb of the Moon. Of all the lunar photos I've ever taken, this is my absolute favorite. Grimaldi and its battered surroundings are almost lace-like in appearance... a three-tiered Victorian pendant hanging on the waist of Lady Luna.

Rimae Ramsden

Submitted by: Carol Lakomiak at Sun Dec 14 02:02:02 2003 UTC

Rimae Ramsden is the spiderweb set of narrow depression lines on the right side of the photo, with crater Ramsden to their right. Flooded crater Mercator is at the top, and if you look carefully you'll see a horizontal line just below Mercator's 'handle'. That's 186 mile long Rima Hesiodus. The large crater at the bottom is Capuanus, also flooded with lava. All these features are located within the oval of Palus Epidemiarum [Marsh of Epidemics].

Rimae Hippalus

Submitted by: Carol Lakomiak at Sun Dec 14 00:02:01 2003 UTC

The curved 'claw-marks' on the right side of the photo are narrow lunar depressions called rimae [singular: rima]. These particular rimae average 149 miles and are named after crater Hippalus, the remains of which resembles the letter 'C' and can be seen in the middle of the rimae. Located on the left side of photo is 40 mile wide Crater Bullialdus with central peak and terraced walls. Dec 3rd 2003; single image [no stacking done]; Nikon CP4300; 8" Meade LX-10. Carol Lakomiak.
