Lunation 196: The 3-Day-Old Moon

Observing the 3-day-old Moon at the James River Crab Shack. Luna continues to slowly unveil details as the Terminator moves across its disk. Tonight we see revealed all of Mare Crisium (Sea of Crises) and part of Mare Fecunditatis (Sea of Fertility).

Whilst "on station" I tried my hand at time-exposures, using my observing partner Larry E Hastings as foreground subject as cars cruised past on and off of the nearby James River Bridge. The results were pretty encouraging for me (I'll try further imagery of this type in the near-future!) and I think Larry's wife Carla Burroughs will enjoy as well.
