new lunar resource

Clementine Lunar Map 2.0 (Beta)

New for me.

After looking at Andrew's recent image of Tycho, I re-called a lunar mystery reported by davep. Mistaken, I soon realized I that it was a mystery about Copernicus and not Tycho.

While looking for the detail I found reference to the Clementine Lunar Map 2.0 in the comment section of the davep post. Conveniently a link to Stuart's fade of the real Copernicus and Geoff Burt's sketch was the icing. Dig it up, it's a tribute to Geoff's sketching skill and a treat to watch the animated gif.
