Job 9:9

Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Crater Julius Caesar & Surrounding Area

The sky is clearing, perhaps I'll take some pictures tonight, but it is quite chilly, about 60F right now.  In the meantime, I'm processing more images that I've taken recently, such as this one that was taken on 6/9/11.  The subject is the terrain around crater Julius Caesar.  Again I'm going to show 2 images, one "blown up" and the original frame.  Just under the crater, Rima Ariadaeus is visible as a light line mostly horizontal. You might have to click the image for the full size image to see the Rima.  It is barely visible.

This area of the moon, roughly east of center is interesting because of the surrounding terrain, as you will see in the following frame:

The area west of Julius Caesar (the poorly defined crater just right of center) is interesting due to its terrain.  The two craters, bottom center are Agrippa and Boden.  If you click to expand thev image, Rima Hyginus is nicely defined just right of center in this image, running mostly horizontal.
