Lunar horizon – Rima Petavius

Rima Petavius
Rima Petavius

I have observed rima Petavius several times .

One exellant seeing night, 2011. 9[september] .14 …. , I ,d found out with my 8″ refractor at x 340 the three tuna-fish like convex hills on the middle of the 80 km long rima road,,,

I was then feel very happy because maybe this discovery was the first since amateur lunar observing history.

I have made this artistic conception today, a Lunar horizon landscape viewed from on one of the the three [Tuna-fish like hills] which located on the bottom of 4 km wide, 80 km long magnificent rill.

I dont know how many billions of years have passed on this geological creation,formation, or evollution forces- sequences.

  1. Hi K.S.Min,

    A very creative sketch. The idea of a lunar horizon is actually something I have thought of doing, but have never gone through with it. You have produced a fine conception.
