Morning Moon Skywatch

I woke up last Tuesday before 4:00 am, 9 March 2017. I was still very sleepy, almost walking to the bathroom with closed eyes. But the very bright lights entering the little slits on the window seem to really be trying to fully wake me up . With still half-closed eyes I opened the window, mount the camera on the already at stand-by tripod and shoot without even checking the camera settings. Now i am posting them here SOOC, straight out of the camera! This is the morning moon about to set at the west, and the next afternoon the full moon was seen at the East in full splendor. The world watched full moon at the East, while i might be one of the very few who watched the moon at the West at dawn.


 3:58a.m.

 4:04 a.m. 

 4:11 a.m. 

4:13 a.m. 

Then i went back to sleep!

    1. Oh you can comment here now, thanks. I have always been taking shots of the morning moon when I feel like it, when laziness and sleepishness don't overpower me. Thanks.
