About this image

Couldn't resist the dramatic sight of Sinus Iridum at the terminator last night, with half of the 'bay' still in shadow but the high rim catching the sunlight. My eyes aren't what they were, but I suspected I could see this with the naked eye as a slight deformation of the Moon's terminator.
