Friday Eye Candy: the Moon and the Terminator
No need to be looking for Ahhhnold, of course. By “the terminator” in the headline I mean the line separating the sunlit part of the Earth from the nighttime side. And that’s the moon floating just above it.
I spotted this photograph in astronaut Karen Nyberg’s Twitter stream, and I found it so beautiful that I had to share it with you.
It is a waning gibbous moon, meaning it is past full, and the illuminated part is greater than the darkened part.
Make sure to click on the image to see a larger version. You’ll see some white lines in the cloud deck. I’m not sure, but I think those are probably contrails from aircraft.
