Waxing Gibbous Moon

Waxing Gibbous Moon

I got this picture of the moon a few days ago, and liked how detailed it was. It would be cool to do a timelapse throughout a whole month, taking a photo like this of the moon every night, to get the whole lunar cycle. I don’t think that would be very feasible here though, one of the nights would end up being cloudy.

Maybe I could just take a picture of each part in the cycle all throughout the year so I end up with one full cycle of pictures taken in different months? I get the feeling something would change between months though, about the tilt and how it looks in the sky, especially if I end up having both summer and winter months. Unless I could just rotate it in the pictures so they are all aligned the right way around…I am going to look into that some more.

  1. That is a great picture, it would be nice if you could get the whole lunar cycle, perhaps you could anticipate the cloudy weather and take the picture earlier/later than usual.
