Description

Copernicus (lunar crater) - A Deeper Study

Copernicus was a Polish astronomer who fought geocentrism, placing the Sun at the center of the universe with Earth and the planets spinning around it. He removed the earth from the center of the universe.
COPERNICUS is one of the moon's most spectacular craters, with a large extension (93 km), just 3.8 km deep, with a sharp edge and well positioned for a good view of your floor using small telescopes. It is also surrounded by a complex lightning system from the debris ejected by the enormous impact that created COPERNICUS, mainly due to its “young” age of approximately 800 million years. What catches the eye is its difference in composition.

   The moon is usually seen in subtle shades of gray or yellow.
   
    The different colors made with the renowned false color technique known by nasa (https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages/details.php?id=PIA00132), VIEWED ON THE TOP LEFT SCREEN ON THE COMPUTER , are recognized to correspond to actual differences in the chemical composition of the lunar surface. Blue hues reveal areas rich in ilmenite, which contains iron, titanium and oxygen, mainly titanium, while orange and purple show relatively poor titanium and iron regions.

   Below in the RIGHT LOWER IMAGE OF THE COMPUTER SCREEN, a reverse color technique was performed to show in more detail the composition difference, the image is with better observational value, without scientific value.

  In the LEFT LOWER PICTURE OF THE COMPUTER SCREEN, I made a 3D representation to show the differences in wall brightness, where higher areas are represented by higher brightness.
