Daylight Moon, Day 44








It amazes me that I can zoom this far in on the moon with a regular old Canon SLR. This was taken a week ago at about 4:30 PM after we got hit with the big snow! Be sure to check out other great photos of our skies from all around the world at Skywatch Friday.

This is simply amazing, you can actually see the craters! This has to be one of the best shot of the moon I've ever seen. Great job!

It's BEAUTIFUL! I'm wondering if you used a tripod or held the camera for this shot. Thanks for dropping by Happily Retired Gal earlier today.
