This was a daytime observation to see what I could make out naked-eye on the moon. So far, I haven’t put much effort into memorizing the major lunar features. I was surprised at the number of features I could distinguish without optical aid when I finished the sketch. Mare Tranquilitatis was the darkest feature visible during this phase. I was also able to make out the bright splotch of Tycho and bright region of Rupes Altai.
