Tonights Moon

The Moon is approaching full, but not quite there yet. Aristarchus is the bright white spot in the upper left part of the Moon near the terminator where the shadow is. Other prominant craters are the rayed Tycho at bottom and Copernicus near center. All 6 Apollo landing sites are in sunlight. Where will the next humans land on its face? This image was obtained on November 13 (local time) with my 70-300mm zoom at 300mm focal length on my Canon 20D. The exposure was 1/400 seconds at f/8, ISO 200. Posted by Picasa
