Photography: Waxing Gibbous Moon

by Tony Hicks

These are shots of last night's waxing gibbous moon, taken using my camera and a 500mm lens. 

In the waxing gibbous phase, gradually more and more of the Moon’s sunlit surface becomes visible, rising from 50 per cent through to a full moon’s 100 per cent. The illuminated portion is therefore a convex semi-circle. Last night, the moon was 69.1% full.
