Earthshine 2 Rabiul Akhir 1434 H / 12 Februari 2013

This was taken from my house. Initially I was looking forward to photograph Moon & Mercury after the Sun set. However thick clouds rolled in and I only able to see the earthshine. Earthshine is a condition where the dark side of the moon lit by sun light reflected from earth. This is a normal phenomena during the new moon or when the crescent is too thin.
