Moon

Here are some ideas and tips to view our closest neighbor- the Moon.

Lunar Identification (Naked Eye)


 

The woman and the rabbit are shapes made from the darker areas of the moon which we refer to as "mare".  Mare is latin for "sea". These darker regions are very noticeable with the unaided eye.  Test your eyesight with these two sets.  See how many seas you can see!






Lunar Identification (Binocular)

Binoculars can reveal a lot of lunar detail including the major craters.  Mare and craters were formed by impacts as the Moon formed.
