Southeastern Tilt

image by Howard Eskildsen, Ocala, Florida

Mare Australe may well be the most neglected area of the near side of the Moon. It is indeed hard to find your way around on this elusive area. I wandered around like a lost boy, checking and rechecking the proper identity of the few craters that have proper names, but it was well worth the effort. I am delighted that the Moon chose to show this seldom-seen area during the current lunation.
