With the moon dominating the sky for the next few days, I really ought to fill the void in my knowledge and learn some of the moon's features.

Probably a fault line that got thrust up when there was geological activity on the Moon.

There's a few good ones on Earth, but most are under the sea, so are not eroded by weather.

Saw that on the last moon cycle. As I recall it was only visible on the one night, the next the light was at the wrong angle to see it.

Nice one Paul. Actually Mike it can be seen very clearly over about 4 or 5 nights but after that the sun gets too high and the shadow effect is reduced.

One day I shall get to try and spot this when the moon is waning to see what it looks like with the sun from oppossite side, I wonder if it can be seen at all.
