Details:
Here is an unusual animation which shows the changing position and shape of the waning Moon in the sky over Chikanga just after sunrise on three beautiful winter mornings following Full Moon on 09 July. This demonstrates how much higher the Moon is at the same time on each consecutive day and how the decreasing area illuminated by the sun appears to rotate. The additional image shows the Full Moon very low in the sky at dawn on the 9th. The photographs were taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 compact camera in intelligent auto exposure mode and wide angle to x60 zoom magnification.
