Lunar Day Twelve

Part of the Astronomer’s Pocket Field Guide book series (ASTROPOC)


As the Moon nears full, it becomes more and more difficult to study, but there are still some features that we can take a look at (Fig. 13.1). Using a colored filter on Moon filter on your telescope is of great benefit - or even wearing sunglasses with your binoculars can be helpful. Before we go to our binoculars or telescopes, just stop and take a look. Do you see the “Cow Jumping over the Moon”? It is strictly a visual phenomenon - a combination of dark maria that looks like the back, forelegs, and hind legs of the shadow of that mythical animal!
