94% Waning Gibbous is the Missing Piece in my Moonsterpiece Moon Phase Composite!

My several month Moonsterpiece photo composite is complete! I've been working on this beast since February, slowly adding to my waxing phase collection, and eventually capturing all but one for several tantalizing cycles!

Victory was inevitably mine, however, as I was able to capture last week's 94% waning gibbous moon high above the haze at 3:59am on June 25, 2013.

Now off to the printers! I'm totally making my composite into a print for my office wall.
