Greetings Readers,

I have been photographing the moon to obtain ultimately 8 pictures depicting 8 phases. Presented today is my latest image: The Waning Gibbous Moon. This Waning Gibbous  Moon appears opposite to the Waxing Gibbous Moon and both these moon images are displayed in this composite image.

The second image shows these moon images as obtained from the camera raw files. Notice that the waxing moon is appreciably larger than the waning moon and this  is because the moon is now further away away by 30,526km ! Tomorrow (10-07-20) will be the best time to obtain an image of the waning gibbous moon BUT it will be raining and the moon wil be away by a further 5000km. Well one cannot win them all.

Jeremy.

They’re pretty clear images

I would prefer to describe them as pretty, clear images!

Alfred and BarKeegan Thank you for your responses.

Why are these images clear ?

There are no high altitude aircraft flying around. Conditions here are the clearest they have been for a long time. Brilliant!

Wait until you see what Mr. Musks "millions of satellites" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starlink)  do to the night skies.

Jeremy.
