Quote:So I wasn't the only Lunie out there on Dawn Patrol yesterday?
Beautiful image, and just the way I remember it.
Quote:The Laplace Prominence is also worth a look.
Quote:Great observing and set of images.
Quote:I saw it the same night up to midnight here. I came back to it to gaze many times during the evening. The shadow showed the shape of the peaks so clearly. It made for a great evening. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Now I want to see it with the shadow the other way during the waning part of the cycle.
Quote:It never looks quite the same, lunation to lunation. That keeps me coming back.
Quote:Mons Piton was just right tonight with its shadow all the way to the terminator. Plato and Mons Pico still in the dark. They will be there tomorrow. I will miss Plato brightening up this time around - The earth is in the way...This place is real fun to watch. I caught it in early twilight before the clouds and skeeters moved in. A friend who is staying here tonight was impressed (by the moon, not the skeeters!).
