Today is a holiday here in Denmark. The Danes are celebrating a religious observance, that is, as far as I understand, unique to this country. It is "Den Store Bededag" and it translates something like "Great Prayer Day".
Therefore my morning is very quiet, as most of the population is sleeping in, today not being a working day. I am however heading to the lab to enjoy a short, hopefully quiet and laid back Friday. And that is exactly how I like those days to be.
Considering that I have talked about the sun this Monday, I decided to dedicate a post this week to the moon as well, which has fascinated me since childhood. There is something charismatic about its cool glow. If the sky is clear, I can almost at all times watch the lunar phases out of my windows. If the conditions are right, I can see the moon out of the window in the roof when falling asleep at night.
However, I am not very good at capturing the moon with my camera. I have tried many times, but I am not happy with the results at all. It looks so amazing in reality, but the pictures never do it any justice.
This below is the crescent moon as it was seen last week, on a clear warm evening, out of my living room window. I wish I could do better than this.
