Description

Two photos taken at an interval of one lunar month with a difference of only 4% of the illuminated phase accurately demonstrate the importance of libation in lunar observation.

With just 2º more libation in south latitude, we can easily observe the central peaks of Hausen crater in the February photo that are not visible in the January photo.

A good lunar observer or even a careful photographer will certainly not pass up this opportunity.

These little things make the Moon one of the most interesting stars in the solar system, just know what to look for!
