Adding to my Waning Moon Collection

Since I made my waxing moon composite, I realized I was missing a lot of the waning phases in my moon collection. It probably has something to do with the fact that after the full moon, the moon rises later and later at night and into the early morning (at least recently). It could also be that the full moon is sort of the climax after watching the moon grow, and afterward it's less impressive to watch it slowly shrink.

In any case, here is a 70% waning gibbous from 5:45 this morning!
