L2 - Earthshine


Recommended Posts

A beautiful sight greeted me as I walked through the door on the way to work this morning. The Moon was fairly low and illuminated by earthshine. I considered grabbing my 'scope and camera, but didn't have enough time. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before I get another chance at that shot and so can tick L2 off on my Lunar 100 spreadsheet!

It always amazes me at how good the eye is at dealing with such contrasting lighting but yet so difficult to capture with a camera. I saw a waining moon in the morning twilight in early Jan. The view still plays on my mind.

The eye has our own personal Photoshop processor, running all the time. We see what we expect to see. Great entertainment value, though.
