Brilliant video, John Moore.
It is truly amazing that the Lunar X is caused by no less than 5 craters.
I have only observed the X on 2 auspicious occasions in my life.
And one of them was on my wife's birthday in 2015.

I like the way you fitted in Rupes Recta in one of your videos.

Clear skies,

Aubrey.

Many thanks, Aubrey

I have to admit, that I've never observed the 'X' intentionally, but have, throughout the years, accidentally viewed it in the eyepiece when trying to attain other official features.

It is a simple apparition - easily missed - near/before 'first quarter' moon times, and while it serves no scientific, observational value; view of it is, somewhat, is rewarding - in terms of how the terrain/inter-terrain can produce an-X--effect (pareidolia-related); and such satisfaction in that one has eventually viewed it.

Hello again, everybody.

I haven't got a clue what the weather is for Tuesday evening; but the Lunar X is due to be visible tomorrow night at 16.36.

Clear skies,
Aubrey.
