Luna and Mars together in the southern sky after sunset on Sunday night. I managed to get a really outstanding shot through the branches of the trees.
Luna is just past its first quarter phase. It is now a waxing gibbous moon, which means the moon’s disk is more than 50% illuminated by sunshine, but less than 50% engulfed in the moon’s own shadow.
I hope to get a really good shot of October's Full Moon - Hunter's Moon - this coming Friday evening during the 2016 South Carolina State Fair in Columbia, weather permitting.
