                        • Several prominate craters at terminator.
                          2 craters one above the other. Maybe 1/3rd from the bottom. Maybe Alicensis, Werner, Blanchinus or La Caile
                          Shortly below was a darker crater.
                          I am still working on learing to ID features.

Will need to contact local power company about replacing some street lights with full cut off versions.
