Last night, August 21, 2020 I stepped outside at about 9:15 p.m. to pull a mat off the front deck and I saw this dropped crescent shaped moon. Our front deck is facing West and I was able to have a good view.
I grabbed my tripod and camera and took these shots.
I had to google some information as below:
Noun. crescent moon (plural crescent moons) The Moon as it appears early in its first quarter or late in its last quarter, when only a small arc-shaped section of the visible portion is illuminated by the Sun.
I took these photos with my zoom Nikon Coolpix B500 camera.
This is actually a Waxing Crescent Moon
The dark skies were showing this off last night. Pretty cool!
