I took these Friday evening, the night before the full moon. Last night's full moon was invisible behind heavy clouds. Not so much as a glow to show where it was shining.
They are mostly an exercise in photography for me, as these images can be found in almost any astronomy book, and are a little ho-hum. I found some tips here that show how to capture an image of the moon that shows up as more than merely a glowing disk of light in a photo. Who knew that you needed to use ISO 100 at night?? I used a 300mm zoom lens, f/11, 1/400 shutter speed to shoot this photo. It is unedited except for cropping. (If you click to get the full size image, along the lower edge you can see the shadows cast by the craters... I can't imagine how huge they must be to show so much texture.)
I took this next one before I remembered to use the zoom. I am always amazed at how small the moon really is in the sky -- it just *seems* so much bigger than this!
Some of the sites I googled recommend shooting at phases other than full for more interesting photographs. I may try that if we ever get another clear moonlit night. That's asking kind of a lot in this place at this time of year!
