The Lunar Observer March 2020

The March 2020 issue of The Lunar Observer, newsletter of the ALPO Lunar Topographical Studies & Selected Areas Program, and the Lunar Geological Change program is available at Back issues are also available at As always, thanks so much for the contributors and readers of The Lunar Observer. In the March 2020 issue, we have some rather remarkable articles. Jerry Hubbell concludes is Focus-On section of the ALPO selected regions craters with a discussion of Tycho and Herodotus. Robert H. Hays Jr. brings a timely and very nice article and drawing of Herodotus. Alberto Anunziato gives us two articles. The first is an article and drawing about Hipparchus C. The second is a fascinating historical research about an event on the Moon seen in 577. This was the first LTP ever listed. Darryl Wilson continues his thermal imaging articles with an article about Thermal Imaging of Tycho. His articles of thermal imaging have stirred up much interest lately. The Gardner Megadome is a very interesting area of the Moon to observe. It is the subject of two in-depth articles by Howard Eskildsen and Raffaello Lena. Rik Hill and David Teske continue their wanderings of a remarkable lunar moonscape with images and articles. Sixteen observers contributed articles to the Recent Topographic Studies Program. Tony Cook as always has contributed an interesting article about Lunar Geologic Change. Thanks again to all who contributed. I hope that you can get out and enjoy some wonderful moon observations.
