I calculate that the center of the Sun will rise on the Lunar X during Tuesday evening 2016 MAR 15 at 22:19 CDT (16 at 03:19 UT). The effect of an X may be seen for roughly two hours on either side of that time. The Lunar X is at selenographic coordinates E 1.1, S 25.5, which is north of the crater Werner at the confluence of the rims of the craters Blanchinus, Purbach and La Caille.

I post predictions for sunrise and sunset at lunar features on my Moon webpage: www.CurtRenz.com/moon.html

Photos and descriptions of the Lunar X would be welcome additions to this thread.
