Moon - 17.2.2018 at 21.06 Valle de Agaete, Gran Canaria, Kanariansaaret, Espanja Observation number 70644

Visibility IV / V

Before taking the picture, the wife wondered about the black dot on the horizon. It turned out to be an airplane and it flew completely (only at this point I noticed) in front of the crescent moon. Well it would have gotten a great picture if the camera had been on hand. I retrieved the camera to capture the setting moon and soon came the image of the TAP plane from the north. It didn't quite happen :) 3.4% of the moon is lit.

Hyvä koppi kuitenkin, nätti sävy jättövanassa.

On hieno kuva ja vanan väri kruunaa otoksen.

Kova kiire on koneella tuoda uusia lomalaisia, kun oikein jälkipoltin päällä ajellaan ;) Hieno kuva!
