Last Night’s Moon

The Moon looked especially nice last night (April 5), crescent-lit at dusk and the rest illuminated by cool blue Earthshine! (That’s sunlight reflected off the Earth and onto the Moon…and then back to the Earth to our eyes!)

The image above was taken without a tripod, so it’s not super-crisp, but I tried to at least get a sense of the wonderful lighting at the time. 🙂

  1. I love a crescent moon myself – last night’s (4/9) dusk revealed a very pretty one, and I had to stop what I was doing (helping Boyfriend fix Dad’s car – ugh) to admire it.
