Monday, September 24, 2012


Craters-W.Bond and Meton .
Meton (122 km), has a vast crater floor, on the north side of the Moon, with a well-defined edge, which consists of a number of large bays. W. Bond (158 km), whose irregular southern flanks include Timaeus polygonal crater (33 km) and which are part of Mare Frigoris north shore, is well seen through a telescope of 203 mm, good atmosphere conditions.
