Description

This feature on the Moon has several names. Rupes Recta, The Straight Wall, and The Sword on the Moon.

It appears to me, although I am no expert in Lunar geology by any means, that the Sword is located within an ancient crater that has been flooded with lava.

I shot this sort of as an experiment during the day using a 12nm HA filter.
