Rabbit On The Moon
Lunar Observing Pattern
Pilanesberg Game Reserve South Africa
5th November
Jet Black Canford Paper with White Pastel Pencil. Used a smartphone to take a picture and crop.
Sketched on holiday in South Africa – The ‘Rabbit on the Moon’ pattern really jumps out at you from Southern Skies and creates a whole new observing experience if you are used to the Northern hemisphere.

  1. Very nice sketch, a very good use of pastel on black paper.

    Living in the Southern Hemisphere, the dark pattern on the full moon has always looked like a rabbit to me!

    Lovely sketch of the “Rabbit on the Moon”. The Rabbit is always the first thing that I see when looking at the Moon. Very nice work.
