THIN WAXING CRESCENT MOON 2 DAYS OLD
The Moon is in its thin waxing crescent phase two days past new. The terminator, the sunrise line,
defines the left-hand edge. North is to the top. Four craters are readily visible at the
terminator, starting with Langrenus just above center. Below it are, in descending order,
Vendelinus, Petavius, and Furnerius. The extreme shadowy western edge of Mare Crisium lies about
halfway from the center to the top. Langrenus is 132 kilometers (82 miles) in
diameter, Petavius 177 km.
