Lunar Skyscape

Not quite full yet, today’s moon is at 87.4% and is termed a “waxing gibbous” moon. The four large craters in the upper portion of the moon are the Sea of Storms, Sea of Serenity, Sea of Tranquility and Sea of Fertility. A couple years ago I made another moon post, where I labeled a number of the visible geographic features on the lunar surface.

    Wow! That is truly breath taking. Is that really one shot or a composite?

    • Thanks Kathy! It is a single-shot, processed with HDR (high dynamic range) software.
