Diane Clarke Blue Moon 2015-07-31


I looked out my window just as a break in the clouds revealed The 2% lit waxing crescent Moon, so luckily I was able to capture this image, shortly after the clouds closed and the Moon was again obscured.

I took this picture while preparing to image NLC’s as the night was clear and quite mild, Venus became visible as the sky darkened & before it got lost in the late evening twilight, I did not see any NLC although they had been reported elsewhere in the UK. The picture was taken at 22.00 although somehow the camera’s clock was 4 minuets fast Canon EOS 750D Static tripod Canon Macro Lens EF 100mm f 5.6 @ 1/60, ISO 400 12.06.21 22.00hrs
