The moon over Balboa Park

The matte appearance of the dark side of the moon, despite the fairly bright crescent, struck me while driving home tonight.

Two moons, different exposures

The moon sets a bit north of west, and was almost perfectly in line with the airport. Here's a plane ascending after takeoff:

And another, after having approached and then turned toward the north:
