So often taken for granted, the moon. Easily the most revered and contemplated celestial object, and you can get lost in it, whether it's in extreme detail on a laptop screen or gazed upon with the unaided eye from a few hundred thousand miles away. And what feelings have been felt, what ideas and ideals have been pondered by billions of others of our kind whilst locked in on it's surface?
Nice pics, but I couldn't find a single crashed spacecraft or ruined tower, so in that aspect, I'm slightly disappointed.

...It's one of the most recognized feature of the moon when humans look up at it. It's had different names in the past:
...Tycho stands out to many due to it's over all brightness, and the ejecta rays that scatter from it.
...At over 86 km in diabeter, it's a large feature that shows up well in both telescopes and binoculars. Even without them, it stands out to the human eye. Both when being lit by sun light
...Last, is a interesting pic to me. I found some rocks...laying in a circle:
...Here is the coordinates for those rocks in case anyone else would like to go look at them:
...Over all the moon itself is just fun to look at, especially up close and personal like the LROC can make it. For any that enjoy doing this too, but don't know how, here is a link to the LROC Quick Maps, where you can explore to your heart's content:
...Hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at Tycho Crater.
