Example text

The observation of 1986 September 18 which is illustrated here was made just after Full Moon with strong libration from the E limb. The Sun has set on the eastern side of the Mare and the surface which remains visible shows that it is strewn with craters, craterlets, a number of obscure rings, ridges and small hills - all greatly foreshortened. Although the western border seems to be of no great height, the shadows encroach rapidly so that by colongitude 95°-96° they are pronounced, and what is left of the Mare is very dark.

Studies of these mountain profiles have been made whenever conditions have been suitable but it is not possible to include the series in this portfolio and they may form the subject of a future treatise. Similarly, this is not the place to discuss in detail the findings on the Mare surface but the drawings are offered to induce interested observers to devote time to further examination of Smyth's Sea whenever suitable opportunities occur.

Geocentric librational values are also given for the mean period of each observing session - these cover a wide range of circumstances and materially affect the presentation of the areas shown in the five sketches.
