Moon

The clear and cold nights this weekend have meant that we have had a good view of the moon.  As it has been rising in the East, it has been accompanied by Jupiter shining brightly.
In the mornings too, the moon has been still shining bravely against the bright blue sky.  In this light, the bright 'spot' of the crater Aristarchus is clearly visible as the brightest point on the moon's surface.  Also the huge crater 'Grimaldi' which appears as a dark spot on the left of the image, is very evident.  Beautiful!
