Gauss and Surrounding Region, 2 August 2004
On the night of 1-2 August, 2004 the moon was 16 days old (2 days after full). I captured a sequence of images along the terminator in the North Eastern part of the moon.
This page shows the southern section, around crater Gauss.

This picture shows the large crater Gauss in outline against the shadow of the terminator. Also seen are many other craters including Messala, Gemimus, Berosus, Hahn and Cleomedes.
Move the mouse over the image to see feature names, move it out to see the undecorated picture.
Click Messala or Cleomedes to show detailed images in a new window.
