Misty Moon, But Looking Good!

Recommended Posts

7.10pm, 8SE - Moon waxing gibbous, low, east of south, and a very misty apparition.

The Apennine Mountains trailed away eastwards from Eratosthenes near the terminator, with the shadows of the peaks looking like a string of beads.  Mag x85.  No big deal really, except that detail was good in spite of the thin clouds, and it made me wonder if a little mistiness actually helped in this respect by suppressing some of the glare.

Only 30 minutes, but better than nothing, and (if I'm right!) an interesting effect.

The last time I viewed the Moon the sky was full of fast moving wispy cloud.  Worked great as a Moon Filter - but when it would suddenly clear it was like shining a torch in your eye....
