Date: 12/11/99 7:15 PM EST
Location photo taken: Greer Ohio
Equipment: Consumer 8mm video camera, 10" LX200,
hand held over 56 mm eyepiece.
Processing: Composite of 24 video frames.  Only unsharp masking was
used.  Software was picture window.


Sun glinting off of Lunar highlands reminded me of a candle flame.
It gave a very unusual appearance.  This glint remained for quite
some time; until we moved on to other targets.
