With the Full Moon high in the northern sky, the two trees in the foreground were brightly lit.
They ground and provide contrast to the odd-looking blue sky, tinted that shade by the bright moonlight.At lower
left, alpha Centauri just peaks out from behind a branch. Over a dozen deep sky objects can be spotted in the image.
Camera generously on loan from Dieter Willasch.
