To rule the night

To rule the night

I took this picture of the moon a short while ago, using some techniques I learned from members of the Flickr crowd. Ever since I was a kid, I have been fascinated by astronomy in general and the moon in particular, and I have fond memories of looking at it through our sliding patio doors on the evening of July 20, 1969, as Walter Cronkite anchored the CBS News live coverage of the Apollo 11 landing and moonwalk.

Of the several moon pictures I have taken thus far, this has been the best, although I expect to be taking many more in the future, with the hope that they will be better still.
