Armstrong’s Full Moon over Brno

On Wednesday July 20, 2016, the mankind celebrated 47th anniversary of the moment when first man walked on the Moon. The legendary mission Apollo 11 with Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins changed the world when their mission succeeded. The anniversary was special with the Moon phase, almost full Moon. This special day I spent in Czech Brno city, where the celebration was really big. Organized by the worldly reputable educational center Brno observatory and planetarium, thousands of people were witnessed by amazing program containing astronomical and cultural events. People were observing the Moon by telescopes, enjoying fulldome shows, swimming in the close pool by the Moon and enjoying fantastic night-light performances of Czech national and Olympics representation of Aquabelles. While enjoying all of that, I could see the rising Moon over the city with the majesic Špilberk castle of 14th century in the foreground. Used Canon 6D Baader IR modified, Tamron 70-300 mm @300 mm, 15x1s panorama + HDR of the Moon, f5.6, from tripod.
