Last night’s moon. 1/30s f/16 ISO100. New EOS R5 w. 800m and 1.4x converter (1120mm). Waxing Gibbous. Illumination: 93%.

During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.
