Moon and Clouds, and Trees and Sky

Moon and Clouds, and Trees and Sky

August 22nd, 2019, 07:01 a.m. local time

Similar to yesterday’s picture – same time, nearly same location – here is this morning’s Waning Moon via the NightCap app on my iPhone. The sky was not as hazy as yesterday, which comes through in the more vivid blue backdrop.

And like yesterday’s picture, some lunar surface detail was captured.

An aging Waning Moon means the current early evening skies are free of moonlight.  So the skies should be good for stargazing, if they are clear.

Image settings for reference:

  • f/1.8
  • 1/2075 sec exposure
  • ISO 24


I write frequently about astrophotography, technology advice, and my other interests like science fiction. I have over 30 years of experience in computer programming, information technology, and project management.
