Waxing Gibbous Moon - June 28, 2012
Another great moowatching night. The moon is as 72% of full illumination. Great views tonight of J. Herschel in the far north, Bianchini sitting just on the dark side of the terminator west of Plato,, Copernicus and Rheinhold in the mid-latitudes, Bullialdus in the south, and in the deep south, Wilhelm and Longomontanus sit just west of Tycho. The peak at the center of Tycho is clearly visible. Sitting below Tycho is Clavius.
