  1. OMG what a stupendous shot! I love the way you can see the dark side of the moon…you’ve outdone yourself today! :)

  2. This is exactly what I saw last night! Nice shot.

  3. Earthshine!

    I was an adult (I swear) before I realized that you could actually SEE the unlit parts of the moon like this. I’d seen it in paintings and stuff, but I just always assumed they put it there because the painter KNEW it was there.

    Then I read about earthshine. And I felt REALLY stupid.

    And incredibly unobservant.
