International Observe the Moon Night 2013: a postcard from the online event
On 12 Oct. 2013, we hosted the online event for the International Observe the Moon Night. Several hundreds of people attended the live session, which resulted in a great success! The sky was clear and the atmosphere so steady, that images turned out to be very detailed.
Above is a fragment of the journey, showing a very interesting portion of the lunar surface. Ptolemaues, Alphonsus and Arzachel are visible in the upper left, with Albategnus on their right. The Rupes Recta shows a a striking feature on the left, exalted by a very intriguing low light; Deslandres is also very prominent and Tycho is just starting to see the Sun.
The image was remotely taken the Celestron C14 robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope.
