Tycho and Clavius (2021-04-23)


Tycho is the crater which everyone knows, but no one knows the name of. It is the crater which has the most prominent rays extending out from it - quite noticeable to the naked eye near the Full Moon. The rays are slightly less prominent at other times (such as this 87.6% lit waxing gibbous).

Clavius just up and to the left of Tycho - with an arc of several smaller craters within it. The shadows within make for a dramatic scene.
