Mostly cloudy with large sucker holes that eventually cleared off completely.

Got to see Newcomb once more and its related craters, A, B, C, G, and J. Craters J and G were in line with A. Crater G looked to be the shallowest and to be the most elongated. B and C were identified to the NE of this line of craters.

Could very easily see the clump on one end of the crater and where Crater A had impacted its NW rim. Montes Taurus was seen as well to its SW.
