Benson, AZ 85602 hm ph: 520-586-2244 Take out your telescope and look at the terminator of the moon. The lighting will only be correct for a few hours. You will see an obvious "X" along the terminator formed by the crater Purbach and a couple others. It's an interesting lighting display if nothing else, kind of like forming pictures in the clouds like many of us did as kids.
