Moon Set over Cordillera & the Copernicus Crater

You had to be up before Sunrise this late September Tuesday.  If you were – and you had a big optical zoom on your digital camera – you could snag a look at the Copernicus Crater on the Moon’s Surface.

The Optics were – the Sunrise in the East highlighting the Moon’s Surface just before the Sun rose above the horizon in the East.  Note the Sunrise had not yet reached the top of Eagle County’s Bellyache Mountain (9,288 ft.)  Interesting lighting this morning.

Didn’t have a Tripod Handy…Hard to hold steady at this BIG ZOOM.
