The Astronomy Cafe Video of Clavius Moretus Maginus Tycho lunar craters

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Of all the craters located in the south of the Moon, Moretus (114 km), it seems the nicest of all. Perfectly round, symmetrical terraces on the inner wall, and even the mountain top on its floor seems perfectly located in the center.
