Moon 21.05.2017, 09:15 (in the morning sky). Moon was in the southern sky at 25° altitude, age was 24.4 days and visibility was about 27 % (values given by LunaSolCal). I tried to preserve the visual appearance of the Moon vs. background sky in this image. Is this better than the previous image (with a darker overall appearance), or not?
