Shot of the Day – Waning Gibbous


Hi all,

I was just outside a few minutes ago, enjoying a smoke, and I looked up to see the Moon hovering a bit above the horizon. I think it’s phase would be called Waning Gibbous. However, I’m not too sure as it’s been a long time since I was involved in Astronomy.

Anyway, I thought the Moon looked so nice and bright floating there that I just had to quick ran inside and grab the camera. I then snuck into the neighbour's yard and took the shot. I couldn’t shoot from my house as the view was obstructed by our trees.

So, this is what the Moon looks like from Auckland, New Zealand right now (1:54am January 27) for anyone that’s curious.

Kind regards
