Luminous Shades of Gray

image by Daniel Fernández (DANIKXT), Sierra Guadarrama-Madrid-Spain

Wonderful treasures are hidden within the 5,361 images in the LPOD Photo Gallery. This one, like an early Christmas card, has an unusual composition: the Earth-lit part of the Moon, a gray sky with a few bright stars defining simple geometric patterns, and Venus looking like a fairy princess. Unusual, and very attractive. This is an example of why LPOD has been successful in filling the 3,056 days, mostly, since its inception on January 1, 2004. Superb images of the Moon, whether from space, through a telescope, or caught with a handheld camera provide an unending stream of scientific, awe-inspiring and emotional views of the most fascinating object in the sky.
