    Another photo to evidence the edge to the east of Mare Crisum, But this without many outstanding formations if we do not take into account the two craters that are located near the West border; Peirce and Picard.
    Some mountain peaks can also be seen against the black background of the sky, but what really caught my attention was the 3D feel that conveys the mountains that form the eastern edge of the sea.
    Promontorium Agarum and several other mountains located in front of Mare Anguis, are a real show apart, giving to realize clearly, that are true elevations in relation to the adjacent land. What spoils a little is the lack of contrast due to the Sun being practically the pin in this region, but nothing that spoils the beauty of a photo made with all affection.

    This is an excellent image that gives a feel for the topography. I have always advocated observing the full moon around the limb because one can see the heights of the mountains and get a good feel for the roughness of the terrain.

    Great image, Avani. Wow, it almost looks like a real sea, lol! I agree with Ed; you get a real feel for the topography.

    Eu também sempre gostei de apreciar os detalhes que se mostram na borda da Lua Cheia, já fiz outras imagens interessantes nessas condições peculiares.

    Mi akiras la impreson de neĝo blovanta super glacio.

    Ĉu vi estas kapabla foto la luna vosto?
