--Expressions of Solar System
127 images displayed, Last updated on Oct 4, 2020


The Moon is the most familiar celestial object for us, the distance to it is about 380 thousand kilometers (237 thousand miles). We can easily observe plenty of crators, mountain ranges, and dark plains in the surface of Moon with light telescopes. And planets, ring of the Saturn, stripes of the Jupiter, wanning & waxing of the Venus, and so on, are the most suitable celestial objects for beginners.
You'll marvel the spectacle of lunar surface and various expressions of planets when you look through a telescope with your own naked eyes.
I picked up here some pictures of members of our solar system.

   Individual images have field angle of 37'×37' and are diplayed by turning lunar antarctic direction upward. The diagram of celestial compass have been indicated in upper right hand side.

Meanings of signs in individual images:
   P: Polar angle... The tilt-angle of lunar axis from the celestial north direction. The values have plus when the axis leans to the left and minus in right.
   B0, L0... These values indicate central lunar latitude & longitude respectively seen from obseving point on Earth.
   Bs, Ls... These values indicate central lunar latitude & longitude respectively seen from center of Sun.
   i: Phase angle... The elongation angle between Earth & Sun seen from center of Moon.
   k: Shone area ratio... The diameter ratio of shone part of Moon.
