    1. Me too but it's hard not to just get black with seemingly nothing on it. I wish I'd got more of the city lights in it now.

  3. Is that Jupiter to the left of the moon? I can never get night photos as clear as this one, lovely shot x x

    1. Thanks MM. Yes there is a strong star just above and to the left of the moon. I was looking west so it wouldn't be the North Star. Jupiter? I really wouldn't know - although I'd like to be able to tell you :).

  4. Lovely Luna - I believe it's Venus next to the moon...

    1. You could be right as, apparently Jupiter, Venus, the Moon and Mercury are all aligned this weekend. Mercury should be below the moon so I didn't get that. Of the other two the positioning looks more like Jupiter from the drawings but Venus is the nearest so I most likely got Venus. Exciting anyway - I was only aiming for the moon.

  5. Thats a really unusual photo of the moon - you dont often get to see its crescent in that position. Very cool.

    1. Jaffa is close but this is Jerusalem ;). There are sort of Jaffa cake colours involved though.

  7. I love @bodforteas comment about the moon smiling! All it needs now is two large orange eyes and it could be the Cheshire Cat!

  8. Beautiful. I saw the moon looking like that last night, but was far too lazy to photograph it.

  11. lovely night shot, the moon does look like its smiling, we had a telescope a few years ago a real good one, (was kindly given to us from a customer) and we spent many nights starring through it but not really knowing what it was we were looking at!!

  14. Ooh, we saw the moon looking like his too. Why is it crescented from the bottom?

    1. From vague memories of geography A'level the bit of the moon we can't see is because the earth is blocking the sun. So I'm guessing that the sun is below the earth and only catches the bottom of the moon. #soundlikeyouknowwhatyouretalikngabout
