Three nights in a row clear sky, it doesn’t happen a lot in cloudy Belgium. I guess I was just lucky. Nice to see the changing shadows and libration. I hope you like it too.

Jef ! We feel that if we were on the moon, we can see the sun set.
Very nice and un common !
Really beautiful details. Enjoyed the transition of time over the same section of Moon.

Very fine to see these wonderful sketches here.
These drawings show why the Moon presents a powerful drawing target for sketchers;
every night a different view.
