The atmosphere on my loction is generally not stable in spring ,summer and I had to eyepiece- sketch fastly this crater for 1 hour before the heavy clouds came on and hid the moon.
Think about the never- changing lunar morphology always make my mind to be infatuated with humble, sad, lonely feelings.
This relatively young [ yes, … “young” ] lunar crater has a 800 million years old age. My humble heart can not accept ,perceive even the vastness of the time-span of my mother country’s 4500 years written history…. then, Ahy-, … it is like as that the repeat of merely 200,000 times mother country’s full history will reach the age of the Copernicus crater.
