Anybody else see the spectacular thin crescent moon early this morning? It was facing up, like a cup (the bottom of the moon was illuminated and the top was dark). Stopped right in the middle of the road and took this through the windshield with my phone. Photo really doesn't do justice to it, the dark part of the moon was barely visible, it just looked like a very thin crescent.

I saw the moon but was not in a position to photograph it. It's called an "earthshine" moon. One of these days I will be in the right spot.
