Something interesting

Features on the Moon’s surface are most easily observed on the terminator – the line where light meets dark on the lunar surface. Shadows here are cast long and low to the ground, making any craters, mountains or ridges very pronounced. Keep observing the terminator every night to see different regions of the Moon’s surface in more detail.
