I love these - and that stripedy one best of all :)
I saw this moon last night, too. Fascinated by the phenomenon of how you can see that shadowy area just faintly. An astronomer told me this is because earth-light gets reflected back onto the moon and faintly illuminates the dark portion.
Love these... and looking at them, made me clean my monitor..lol!
My friend, Tom, had emailed me about the moon but said he didn't have a long enough lens to get a good picture. Neither did I, though I tried. I just sent him a link to your blog because I knew from your past moon shots that you wouldn't let us down. Good work, Mike.
Mike-Thanks for posting great shots of the Cheshire Moon. I'm the friend Bruce noted and appreciate your photos.It's nice to see that amazing scene again.
I loved it! Just like the Cheshire Cat.
