How do you take a great picture of the moon with your phone? Last year, @EricTeske gave us some tips. #SciFriLive pic.twitter.com/j2ndVu15sm— Science Friday (@scifri) September 18, 2015
I replied with this photo (below) and a link to my article about taking even better moon photos with an iPhone by using video mode. I made the photo just for Twitter and it got quite a few retweets so I thought I'd also post it here.

I didn't realize until just now, but I've actually done some observing / photography on International Observe the Moon Night every time for the past 3 years - and usually just as a coincidence. Here are my posts from 2012, 2013, and 2014. Who knew I was being so inadvertently consistent!
For posterity, here is my moon photo from tonight, a combination of 20 frames each at f/8, 1/60 sec, ISO 100, 300mm. It's a little rushed, I'm not sure if that's why it's a little fuzzy or if it was the atmosphere. Blame it on the atmosphere!
