Last Quarter

Taken at 6:55 AM, compared to yesterday's 6:50, and the blue sky is now visible.

 

This is actually a bit before last quarter--still 55% illuminated as seen from Earth--but to the naked eye it actually appeared crescent-shaped, probably because the maria near the equator are darker than the highlands nearer the poles.
