Smiling Crescent Moon Over Okinawa

New Moon Coming Soon



Early this morning while walking the dog I noticed the moon appeared to be smiling.

Just a little bit over 5 1/2% of the moon is visible. It's called a Waning Crescent.

The New Moon (which isn't visible) happens at 3:26 AM, the day after tomorrow.

Thinking, it may be raining for tomorrow's moon viewing, I shot this image today.
