Catch a falling moon

This image was runner-up in the Astronomy photographer of the year competition held by the National Maritime Museum.  It made me smile...

It is called Hunting Moon by Jean-Baptiste Feldmann from France. The website calls it "a playful silhouette places an Earth-bound Moon-catcher in pursuit of the waxing crescent Moon in the early evening sky on 6 April 2011."


  1. For some reason this reminded me of "The Little Prince" maybe the slope of the hill, or the silhouette of the child wearing what looks like a cutaway coat.

    Great shot.

  2. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. It's a clever shot. Thanks for showing it to us.

  4. A haunting image, very much worth preserving.
