DescriptionThis is one of many lunar images we captured on the night of June 10, 2011. The waxing gibbous moon was just 9.54 days old, but already 72.2% illuminated. Our conditions were good, giving us the opportunity to capture some great features on the lunar surface. This image shows many mountains that chain together to form the larger mountain range known as Montes Apenninus. Many craters can also be seen, as well as some mare.
