Headed to Sleep by Dan0128 Headed to Sleep by Dan0128
With a fresh bed of high clouds just below the waxing 6% moon. I almost missed this shot; my friend reminded me just in the nick of time and I ran outside (with so much as a jacket) and balanced the camera on my mailbox

Aww thank you. An earlier shot would've had more blue in the sky though; that would've been even better

When the moon is this thin, a special effect called "Earthshine" happens. While only a sliver of the moon is actually lit by the sun, the entire lunar surface is lit up by the reflection of the planet earth from the sun hitting it. It's hard to explain without some kind of diagram...

It's only when the moon is close to the sun so keep an eye out. You may need binoculars to see it as well but I can remind you next time
