Dawn Moon

The Moon was spectacular this morning, hanging over the south-western horizon. Lots of impressive craters are visible at last quarter - as this phase is called by astronomers - some of these are labelled below. You can also see very clearly that the 'seas' are in fact vast impact craters: the Mare Imbrium is particularly impressive, with its south-eastern rim making up the Apennine Mountain Range.

Sorry about the recent lack of wildlife: this is mostly due to the bad weather and lack of any obvious targets!
