A large, dark centred crater at the south end of the terminus; much smaller craters south of Clavius.

Didn't see the rays you see during the Full Moon or later in the Moon's cycle. It looked like a flower - Tycho was the centre with smaller craters circling it like petals.

The Apennine Mountains in their entirety could be seen this evening. This crater was at its southern tip. Quite large with a central peak.

Located on the NE shore of Mare Imbrium. Large, dark centre with well-lit jagged rim.

Located Mare Nubium.
