My last observation in the Philippines was a quiet night with the setting crescent over the local village. This blog post as the comment and sketch. There is religious content.

Roland,

Beautiful crescent moon with fine earthshine.
I can almost feel that tropical air.
Love the sketch.

Frank :)

Thanks, Frank. I can definitely remember the humidity. :) Glad you enjoyed the sketch. Grabbed Clavius tonight but sketched while doing a sketch lesson on Night Skies Network. It means I stay really busy and try to sketch at the same time.
