The Beautiful Moon

The Moon on 11/13/07

Well, wouldn’t you know it – after the sky was just about covered with clouds, I went in to eat dinner, came back outside and the sky had cleared significantly. I took this shot of the crescent moon on the western horizon along with the zoomed in version below using my Barlow. The crater near the bottom of the moon (Tycho? I haven’t looked it up yet.) stood in really clear relief. Through binoculars, it was gorgeous.

Now, I’m getting images of the comet while the sky still looks so nice.
