Solar crescents projections
From a big spoon, a sign filled with small holes

solar corona
earth shine
the sun's light bouncing back from earth to the moon. A long exposure with my camera stabilization system on a moving ship, gave me the chance to see the lunar craters. Maybe a first...who knows?

the lunar shadow has a 200 km diameter and moves at 1 km per sec. At the horizon, a 360 degree sunset!
