Julius Caesar - 18.4.2021 at 21.45 - 18.4.2021 at 22.40 Harjavalta Observation number 97791

Visibility IV / V

Jari Kuula, Porin Karhunvartijat

The company draws the Julius Caesar crater. The shape is about 85km in diameter, and has experienced the destructive power of the throws of the Imbrium collision. The southern bottom area is 800m higher than the north, probably precisely because of the slopes of the Imbrium basin, and the north is darker apparently due to lava eruptions.

Riccioli named a crater for J. C because of his calendar reform. Sosigenes, who assisted JC, also got its name from the neighborhood.

Sosigeneen was assassinated by Octavian in a declaration of war to Egypt in 31 BC.
