You are Missing so much When You Look at the Moon!
The moon has thousands of features we can look at with binoculars or a telescope... and it can be really hard to know where to begin.
Even if you regularly take the chance to spy it through a telescope, the chances are you are missing the best views because you don't know what to aim for or what it is you're seeing.
To help us, we astronomers were given a challenge by Sky & Telescope Magazine several years ago: The Lunar 100.
This famous list of 100 lunar features ranges from the very easy to the incredibly difficult. It includes craters which can only be seen by telescope and features that are only visible now and again thanks to the moon's 'wobble'.
You may have seen the moon a thousand times or more, but you've never enjoyed it like you will do when hunting for the Lunar 100.
When you've spotted all one hundred stunning features on this challenging list, and can tell the experts at your astronomy club all about it, you'll be so proud of your impressive achievement!
Sadly, just finding all those features is...
Not as Easy as You Think!
The Lunar 100 is designed to be both easy to get into and incredibly challenging.
If you know where to look, the first ten sites on the list can be found with good eyesight, and are not a problem in even a small pair of binoculars.
As you move into the deeper numbers, the challenges become harder.
The craters become smaller, many can only be seen easily on two or three nights of the lunar cycle. You will need the right information to make them easier to find.
And, just when you think you have it under control...
We come to the real stinkers!
Items 80 onwards are a collection of diabolical quests.
Craters so small you'll need a good scope, great viewing and a quality guide to show you the way.
Heck, some of the craters are only visible when the moon librates! This is the small wobble that shows us some of the 'dark side' of the moon now and again.
The best way to spot all 100 lunar features is with a great guide in hand!
Here, at Love the Night Sky, our mission is to Make Astronomy Accessible to Everyone. With our complete, 4-part Lunar 100 guide, no matter if you're a complete novice or a practiced moon-watcher, you'll be finding and recording every single one of the Lunar 100 in no time at all.
Download the guide and, if the sky is clear tonight, you'll have recorded your first features by the morning!
Let Love the Night Sky Help You Discover the Lunar 100
In this great value guide, you get four separate packs to help you discover everything about the moon that you can think of.
Pack 1 - Lunar 100 Finder List: The complete list of all 100 lunar features, including what they are, where to find them and the best night of the moon's cycle to look for them.
To give you the best chance of success, we've split the 28 day lunar cycle into 10 separate phases. This means that each covers around three days, so you can pinpoint exactly when to see the features you're looking for.
Pack 2 - Moon Locator Charts: Using superb pictures of the moon from NASA, these charts show you in detail the location of every single one of the Lunar 100 features.
Not only that, but each feature is shown on the best lunar phase to see it! No more wasting time looking for features buried in darkness or in so much glare they can't be enjoyed.
With this pack alone, you'll be sure to see each of the Lunar 100 features only when you have the best chance of finding it and when its looking its very best!
Pack 3 - Moon Calendar: A complete daily calendar of the moon from now until the end of 2017 (plus a FREE UPGRADE - you'll be sent the entire 2018 calendar when it's released for no charge).
With this special lunar calendar, you can see exactly what phase the moon is at every day, when it will rise and set (in the US) and which are the best features to locate that night.
Use this pack together with pack two to pick the perfect day for spotting your next feature. First, see what days of the moon's phase gives the best seeing and then discover exactly which days in the next four weeks you need to be outside with your scope.
Pack 4 - Lunar 100 Checklist: A complete checklist which you can personalise as you discover the Lunar 100 from the comfort of your own backyard.
This specially designed pack lets you record your Lunar 100 spotting achievements. For each individual feature, make a note of when, where and how you saw it. When you've done, you'll have a complete record you can share with astronomy club friends or refer to time and again in the future.
