I was starting to plan my next attempt at getting a photo of a full moon rising over the Harrisburg Capitol Bldg when I realized that for just 2 days in August the Sunset would share the sky with the a tiny sliver of a moon. On Aug 19, as luck would have it clouds ruled the sky but on the 20th things cleared midafternoon and there was chance. During the day the moon wasn't visible, it was to close to the same position in the sky so it got blown away by the bright sunlight as it chased the sun across the sky. Hoping for the best I went down to the east back of the Susquehanna at sunset to try and capture the event. At first it looked as though it wasn't going to happen. As you can see below the sun is going down and no moon to be seen. Halfway across the river a couple of Great Egrets flew down stream as they headed west for the night, but still no moon. More time passed and with the help of an app on my phone I found a faint outline, zoomed in and sure enough there is was. But it was going to take time. Fortunately, my partner cooperated and I got to get some pictures of the moon with a backdrop of the sunset. This is an event that does not happen all that often due to the paths the earth and moon follow around the sun. The panorama at the end was taken when I returned to the same spot just four days later when the sky wasn't overcast again and had to stitch 12 portrait pictures together to include both the moon and the sky where the sun went down. You will also notice how much the look of the moon changed in that short time.
