Currently a student at Columbia Basin College with a goal of earning a degree in astrophysics. I had labs, studying the geology of the moon. I decided to capture its beautiful waxing gibbous phase before the fog set in. You can see the beautiful lunar Maria and impact craters, especially Copernicus and Tycho.

An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
