Photographer's Note

Last year we had an unusually warm and beautiful autumn. (According to what I heard, it was the warmest autumn ever recorded in Romania, during the last 500 years.) I took advantage of this fine weather to take a trip to the beautiful Moeciu - Pestera area, where I had the chance to photograph the rising moon over the top of the Bucegi mountains. I thought that a white moon which is tangent to the white crest of the mountains looked good in the light of the setting sun. The only complain I have is that I would have liked the moon to be in its "full moon" phase. But I like this gibbous moon as well :) I hope you like it too! Photo was taken hand held.

Here are some cool facts about the Moonrise from Earth:

The moon rises and sets every day, appearing on the horizon just like the sun. The time depends on the phase of the moon. It rises about 30 to 70 minutes later each day than the previous day, so the moon is out during daytime as often is it's out at night. At the time of the new moon, the moon rises at about the same time the sun rises, and it sets at about the same time the sun sets. As the days go by (as it waxes to become a crescent moon, a half moon, and a gibbous moon, on the way to a full moon), the moon rises during daytime (after the sun rises), rising later each day, and it sets at nighttime, setting later and later each night. At the full moon, the times of moonrise and moonset have advanced so that the moon rises about the same time the sun sets, and the moon sets at about the same time the sun rises. As the moon wanes (becoming a half moon and a crescent moon, on the way to a new moon), the moon rises during the night, after sunset, rising later each night. It then sets in the daytime, after the sun rises. Eventually, the moon rises so late at night that it's actually rising around sunrise, and it's setting around sunset. That's when it's a new moon once again.
