Earthshine and Moonset

This 5 second exposure shows the earthshine rather better than it can be seen with the naked eye or binoculars.

This series about a minute apart shows the moon setting behind the hill. Even after the bright crescent has gone the 'dark side' is still visible because of the earthshine.
