A Waxing Gibbous!

Did you know that a Waxing Gibbous was a phase of the moon? I didn’t! You’ll see a waxing gibbous moon between a first quarter moon and full moon. The word gibbous comes from a root word that means hump-backed.

This photo was taken on 7th April 2020 at 8.42pm. To me it looks as though it’s a full moon, but according to Moon Info, it’s not quite there! As the moon carries out it’s journey across our skies, the colour can change according to its angle, and I managed to capture it with wonderful warm tones.

Taken with a Nikon D7100, Lens Nikon 18-300mm, Focal length 300mm, -2/3 EV, ISO 100, Manual Mode.
