A crescent moon passes Jupiter at sunset. This photo was
overexposed to show "earthshine", which is sunlight that reflects from
the sunlit side of the earth, to the moon, and back to the earth.
"Earthshine" lights up the dark portion of the moon just like moonlight
lights up the dark side of the earth. 1 second exposure on Kodak
Royal Gold 1000 film. 200mm f/3.5 telephoto lens with 2X
piggybacked on the 12" scope.

the 12" scope.
