Description

The thinner crescent of the day side and larger angular diameter made it much easier to catch thermal emissions from the night side.

As of posting time, I'm unsure if the brightness variation on the night-side is real or not. I suspect the bright area near the center is an optical artifact, but the darker areas match closely with the simulation.
