The Cross of La Caille Home

Move your mouse over the picture to see the names of the various craters.

I was lucky to catch this strange "formation".  An hour later it had gone.  The cross is formed by the rising sun light catching the tops of ridges between the craters in this rugged area with the tiny crater La Caille D on the top.
This area is just to the north of the area shown here

The picture was taken using my LX200 on 18th November 2015 at 17:46 UT when the Moon was 6.8 days old.
