The Living Force
So here they are, the Moon from dawn and Mercury from about 9 AM and placed next to one another in post processing. And these are not to scale, by the way. Mercury would need to be about 1/8 the the size shown to be accurate, but I just left the images at their natural sizes since it looked nicer
The night the moon dressed like Saturn.
From afar you may wonder, “Is that an asteroid ring around the moon?”. Well, the disguise of this waning moon is actually a thin cirrostratus cloud. The way the cloud interacts with the moon creates a unique display of beauty that steals protagonism from the surrounding stars. Below the moon? The dimly lit silhouette of volcano Pacaya and the Guatemalan highlands can be appreciated.
