In high lighting, dark Schickard looks like a small mare,
or like Grimaldi (for which
I mistook it until I got my bearings straight). A fan of lighter
material spreads out across the crater floor from a small crater (unnamed
in Rukl) on the east end. Rukl shows this color contrast well.
At sunrise, Schickard is monstrous as it looms on the terminator with just bits of its far wall beginning to peek up into the sun. At left, two slightly different views of Schickard at sunrise.
