The photos don't do it justice, it was breath takingly beautiful. I am in love.
When I am out on the beach and want to know what the moon is doing I use this site
Tonight when I checked the moon was at 11.7% and changed to 11.8%. Either I happened to catch them at a time they change the percentage or this site is updating the moon in real time! I have a feeling it is the latter.
Here is a screen shot from Sky View, I use it to tell me what is what in the night sky.
