Crescent Moonset Over Pyramid, September 26, 2014

Ok, I didn't expect to fool anyone - this isn't a pyramid in Egypt, it's my neighbor's roof - but if you tilt the photo sideways and crop it just right it could pass as a pyramid, right?

This is an uncropped photo showing the moon setting in the "sweet spot" between the roofline in my development. I actually really like this photo!! You can even see the top of the silo across the street. I love that you can just barely see this bizarre object among the rooftops, it makes me feel less boxed in by houses knowing that I can see something on the "outside."

I moved the tripod back and forth until I got the shot lined up just right showing the crescent moon cradled by the roof and tree.

  1. Hi, is it OK if I post one of your moon pics to my facebook page (www.facebook.com/skysciences)? There was an identical moon last night, I posted about it but couldn't get a picture. I will of course credit your pic accordingly. Thanks.
