|Moon. Nikon D7000|
There was a very thin crescent moon this evening. Just visible by eye was the outline of the disk of the moon; earth-shine providing a very feint illumination of the surface!
I guess that as the Earth is bigger than the moon, the light from a 'full earth' when seen on the moon must be much brighter than the light we get from a 'full moon'. The moon is pale dust though which may reflect more; does 'earth shine' have a blue tint?
