Moon Beacon

The moon is resting on the top of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. And yes, those beams of light are entirely natural - created with the first order Fresnel lens that has since been removed from the lighthouse while it is undergoing repair.

 

There were a billion photographers (slight exaggeration, there were only about 100,000) witnessing this spectacle which only occurs once a year.
