A playful silhouette places an Earth-bound Moon-catcher in pursuit of the waxing crescent Moon in the early evening sky. The bright crescent is the part of the Moon lit directly by the Sun, which is visible from Earth. The rest of the face of the Moon is also visible, although much fainter owing to reflected light from the Earth, known as earthshine. Born digital photograph entitled 'Hunting Moon' by Jean-Baptiste Feldmann taken on 6th April 2011. Taken with Nikon D3100 digital camera; Samyang 18-55mm lens. Runner Up in People & Space category of Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2011.
