Promontorium Agarum - 12.10.2022 at 02.28 - 12.10.2022 at 03.32 Harjavalta Observation number 109961

Visibility IV / V

Jari Kuula, Porin Karhunvartijat

An attempt to draw Cape Agarum in the evening light. There were too many cloud rafts sailing in the sky, so it took too long to finish the drawing. The massif stretches from the southeast to the Sea of Danger for 40 km, it is about 80 km wide. Agarum's birth coincides with the Crisium pool event in the nectar season. The massif is actually also on the edges of the older, eastern Crisiumalta. The height of the mountain above sea level is 3700m. Agarum was shaped by the Condorcet W and J craters. Johannes Hevelius named the promontory in 1647 as the northern cape of the Sea of Azov. Agarum is one of the four place names of Hevelius that are still in their original location. In the 1st photo, a cell phone photo via maksutovi.
