Making the cover!


This is the Alpine Valley on the moon. It is 130 km long by 11 km wide with a 700 meter wide rill on the floor. It is a large fault. This is difficult to see visually.

Mike had wonderful news this week! He’s a cover guy! The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada had chosen his moon shot to be on their 2019 cover, a first, and he gets to be Mr. March as well! So proud of him. When the seeing is good, he can work magic with the moon! Mike does his photography with a 18″ Starstucture Dobsonian and an Asi174MM camera. I guess I can tease him about being a pin-up guy now;)
