The Moon  Home

A note on the Lunar Day.      The definition of Colongitude.

I've divided this page into nine parts.  1, a page, itself divided into four, showing close-up pictures of craters and other features at varying scales.  2, a page showing the phase of the Moon for each day of a lunar cycle.  From here you can see some large mosaic pictures.  3, a page indexing high-resolution images of the whole Moon.  4, a page illustrating how the Moon may be imaged in the day time.  5, a page of pictures taken at Full Moon.   6, a set of images of the Apollo landing sites where men have landed on the Moon.  7, I discuss, briefly, the libration of the Moon.  8, I show some pictures of earthshine.  Finally, if you click on the little animation above you can see a brief discussion of the Earth-Moon system (but be aware, it loads a 428K file).

Close-up pictures of craters and other features.  The first page is an index to a large collection of images. The Moon on each of 28 days of a lunar cycle. An index of the high-resolution pictures of the whole Moon taken with a Canon 1100D DSLR camera and my 8-inch Ritchey-Chrétien telescope.  As I get these pictures, entries will be added there which are links to the full pictures.  They are also accessible from my 28-days page.
The Moon in Daylight On this page I illustrate that the Moon may be imaged quite successfully in broad daylight, and describe how I go about it. I took a number of pictures at full Moon, some in exaggerated colour. The manned landing sites
. Here I discuss the libration of the Moon.
The page loads a 547K demonstration.
. Pictures of the total lunar eclipse on 3rd March 2007. Here I discuss briefly the phenomenon of Earthshine.
