The Moon is an astronomical body that orbits planet Earth and is Earth's only permanent natural satellite.
Moon corona caused by the refraction of light through ice particles in high altitude clouds. It generally means rain or snow will fall shortly.
This is what happens when no birds are around and you are looking for something to shoot :)
The Waxing Moon with Venus which is partially full, a little after the Sun dropped below the horizon.

Waxing Moon a couple of days before the full phase. Gull wouldn't cooperate and cross the face but judging by the shutter release I would have missed anyway. and been grousing even more.
Hand held capture of the moon as it cleared through some clouds deck over California.
Full Moon taken at 1.500mm focal length (mosaic of 32 frames). Very high saturation to highlight the mineral composition of the moon's surface.
Equipment: Skywatcher Mak 127/1.500 on Celestron AVX Mount & Astrolumina Alccd5l-IIc high speed lunar/planetary camera
Just at tree top level the quarter moon gives great detail of the craters on the ever present face of our neighbor. My Inspire Me Thursday frame.
Getting better at the Moon shots. Focus not too bad on this one, now got to try and get more detail !

On Monday, May 25, 2015, the Moon was in a First Quarter phase. This phase occurs roughly 7 days after the New Moon when the earth is one quarter of the way through it’s orbit around the earth. Exactly half the moon will be illuminated and half dark. On the day of the First Quarter phase the moon is high overhead at sunset and is visible until mid-night when it sets in the west. The First Quarter phase is a one day event and in the following days enters a Waxing Gibbous phase becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon.

Blood Moon 27.07.2018
So I did try my luck during the 27/July lunar eclipse. I found the fully eclipsed moon to be extremely dim and small and very difficult to capture. This was the best I could do, and while not perfect (especially the focus) I think it captures the mood of that night.
From Thursday (21.02) evening! My little compact can't quite convey how amazing it looked, plus it's through (dirty) double glazing! It was such a fabulous colour!
Full moon over Germany.

I see the big ball in the sky ;-)
Thank you for ll your awards and nice comments.
A full moon, harvest moon, super moon, and total eclipse of the moon—this one has it all.

Venus's Phase and Earthshine (Light reflected from Earth and its atmosphere onto the dark part of the Moon) , can be clearly seen!
One of the tantalizing things about the moon is that we know we can never touch it. But it never fails to touch us, sometimes with surprise, but always as a caress, never as the sun might strike in heat of day. The moon is gentle, alluring, magical. Like a beautiful woman just out of reach.
Although I was paddling on Horsepen Bayou when I captured this image, the smaller of the two subjects was actually a half mile or so to the west, directly above the Johnson Space Center where, in my day job, I support both the Orion Program that hopes to return US astronauts to the moon, and the Commercial Crew Program that will launch US astronauts to the International Space Station on commercial spacecraft. Somehow the image seems appropriately symbolic.
The larger of the two subjects, by the way, is more than a quarter million miles away.
