Scintillating report, Mike!!

As you know, seeing conditions were rather poor last night. But you were still fortunate enough to visually catch the ray of sunlight within Hesiodus.

I went back to revisit my video. This time I concentrated specifically on the target region while processing.

Although not as sharp as I'd like, I am still pleased with this new result.

I like how the beam of sunshine widens as it gets further from the split in the crater wall.

I compare it to the beam of a flashlight, which widens as it gets further from the source.

Hint, hint: This is a perfect topic to be shared during the Coffeehouse conversation.
