During its twenty-nine-and-a-half-day journey around our planet we can often see our moon from New York City. We get to see all sorts of phases, when the sky does clear. The landscapes/cityscapes provide a myriad of foregrounds for pictures. It often appears with other objects like the International Space Station. Behind clouds the glowing light becomes mysterious. On January 31, 2018 we saw a glimpse of the moon being eclipsed by the Earth’s shadow as it set in the early morning light.
