Description
While observing the Moon on New Year's Eve just before 6pm EST, I was looking for the area of the Werner X. I noticed that I was possibly a day early but, I noticed this little mini-X very close to the crater Werner. Looks like a Werner X mini-me ! :) Is this something new? Has anyone ever seen this before?
