  1. Thia Krach,

    You have an excellent moonsketch today on ASOD!
    Very fine craters on terminator and all.
    Like Frank, you have also “the moon in Your hand”!!


  2. Cindy,

    I would never tire of looking at this beautiful capture.
    It is bold and beautiful. It captures the true high power view of this region of Moonscape at sunrise.

    Frank 🙂

  3. Thanks Per-Jonny, Frank, & John,

    This sketch is from 2012 but I agree I never tire of looking at this area of the Moon. A very foreign landscape.
