A Couple of Cometary Craters

Here is a window-sill image of the 6 1/2 day moon from a couple of days ago. It is very like the 7-day moon image I posted a while ago, but there is plenty to see when the Moon is in this phase. Notably, there are a couple of craters with “tails” that look like comets. There is Messier (obviously!) but Rosse also seems to have a tail. In fact, this one is one of Tycho’s “rays”6_5-day-moon_samworth_050117.
