Photo of the full moon from NASA with the two craters Tycho and Copernicus labeled along with the more prominent mareEnjoy watching the first full Moon of 2022 tonight!

Can you spot the bright craters Tycho & Copernicus with your unaided eye? 

Look for the dark, smooth mare too. Mare means seas in Latin, but we now know mare are ancient lava flows.

It's amazing what we can see from 1/4 million miles away!
