Lunar Day Twelve
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!
