Crescent moon

The other evening Chaos Boy asked me why the moon has a second moon on top of it. I couldn't figure out what he meant and went to check. It was a crescent moon, but the part of the moon in shadow was clearly visible.

  2. What a great shot Jonker. With it being so cold, I never stick my nose out at night so have not seen the moon for a while now. :)

  7. Children can describe the world in curious ways that adults simply cannot think of! You seldom see a moon like this, though, and his description is perfect!
