Snapped a thin crescent this evening

Nice shot. Nice earthshine, too. I wish my back yard had a low horizon for rising and setting things.

I Saw it on the way home from work at 8pm (key worker so not breaking the rules, not that anyone here would jump to conclusions anyway :)) and smiled a lot. It's been a few months since I've caught a thin crescent so thanks for sharing Michael 👍

Lovely shot Michael. I was looking for it before the sunset but there was a fair bit of cloud around. Finally managed to get the Tak on it later on and saw some nice crater detail. Conjunction with Venus in a couple of days will make for a nice shot if it’s clear.
