Waning Daylight Moon46 viewsWaning moon sketched in colored pencil on light blue paper at 2:00 pm on 5/5/13...just before it dipped behind the trees in my backyard in Oberlin. The image is displayed as I saw it through the eyepiece, so the features are upside down. I believe the dark spot at lower right is Grimaldi crater, while the lighter blemish just above it is Schickard. The lower portion appeared darker than the upper because of Oceanus Procellarum.
Varieties of Light27 viewsAn illustration of a few different kinds of light you might experience at a star party: starlight, reflected sunlight (shown in the crescent moon & earthshine, Venus, Jupiter & moons), green laser light, red light, and the light of discovery in a new observer's eyes. Done in Sharpie, Bic pen, and colored pencil, on white paper.

Full Moon11 viewsA collage of torn and paint-spattered black construction paper depicting the full moon. You can read further comments about it on my blog here:
First Quarter Moon10 viewsIn this drawing, I've interpreted real lunar features with a bit of artistic license. The Sea of Rains is the central focus. Framing some prominent craters, this ancient volcanic plain is edged from south to north by the Appenine and Caucasus mountains, and capped by the "Alpine Valley." The northern Sea of Cold bleeds around the crater Aristotle and into the lakes of Death and Dreams, finally bringing the eye to rest on a Sea of Serenity. It is easy to get carried away with such poetic names!
Full Moon Glare15 viewsA few weeks ago I stepped out onto my front porch and watched the full moon shine out from behind bands of rolling clouds. Because of an optical effect caused by my glasses, long glaring beams seemed to radiate from the moon's face and spread out over the sky like a ghostly flower. Though the thick clouds proved impenetrable to the moon's reflected brilliance, their edges still shone with feathered silver.
