Ancient Temple and Young Moon

By: Chris Kotsiopoulos


Athens, Greece

2009 March 27


From the photographer: "The 2500 year old Parthenon and the New Moon (just over a day old) in a rare conjunction. The good seeing and transparency conditions contributed to success in capturing the thin crescent from inside the heavily light polluted city of Athens. The photo is a composition of six stacked shots taken at 2 minute intervals. Note that the Moon hides behind the temple and then partially reapears just before it dives below the horizon. The shot is taken from the top of the Panathinaiko ancient stadium." Chris Kotsiopoulos
