Description
Since August Full moon, my grilfriend Sabine (in the picture) and I have decided to adopt a new way to photography the Moon. See http://www.photoastronomique.net/galerie_us.php?id=12 and http://www.photoastronomique.net/galerie_us.php?id=3 Here, the white hoop has the size of the umbra in order to apprehend the real size of it near the Moon orbit.
