    This evening's moon is at First Quarter...or what many of us call, "Half Moon". In addition to this image, I'm also posting a notated image showing Lunar X and Lunar V. I only learned about these letter formations recently. I barely was able to capture them this evening because they only appear as the moon approaches First Quarter. Beyond that, the sun's direct light obscures them. If you have a good set of binoculars, or a decent telescope, you should try to locate them during the next approach to First Quarter.
