Along with the Moon progressing toward its last-quarter phase in this picture, you can see labeled the Apollo 12, 14, and 15 landing sites that were also illuminated last night. Trying to learn the lunar geography more instead of just looking up and taking a picture.
Apollo 12 landed in the Oceanus Procellarum region (latin for “sea of Storms”)
Apollo 14 landed in the Fra Mauro Formation near Cone Crater, just northeast of the Mare Cognitum (latin for “The Sea that has Become Known”)
and Apollo 15 landed in the eastern region of the Mare Imbrium region (latin for “Sea of Showers”)

Can you find #Mercury? Was driving home tonight and saw the Moon dropping through the thin clouds, headed for the overcast layer that was approaching and had to pull off the highway, stop at a gas station, and get a shot of it before it went away. First time seeing Mercury with my naked eye in a long time. hint: it's off to the right side of the Moon, same height - in case you can't find it :) @CanonUSA #EOS #7DMKII #Canon #EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM 145mm | f/4 | 1/25 | ISO 400
Full Buck Moon rising over Pisgah National Forest in Asheville, North Carolina. I have never really been anywhere outside of the flat fields of Indiana, and I find the not only the change of scenery but also the beauty of Mother Nature, absolutely stunning.
Moonstack - my first NASA Astronomy Photo of the Day
Long-exposure of a crescent Moon illuminated in a majority, by earthshine. Earthshine is light reflected off the surface of the Earth toward the Moon, allowing (in a long-exposure) to see the not-yet-illuminated face of the Moon.
