    ....and a bit like your posts...... a distinct lack of gravity.

    I can accept that a half moon will not be so bright. Most of the light
    hitting the moon will be reflected along it's path. For a half moon we
    are seeing light reflected at an angle.

    Yes, for close subjects that would work, impractical entire landscape

    Well as proponent of uk.rec.humour, I do have a certain reputation to
    live up to. ;)

    Imbecile. Utterly moronic when it comes to even the most basic physics too,
    I see.

    The above statement is true. There is not the slightest hint of
    rudeness. One of us will be buried six feet under before I will
    apologise to you (or anyone else) for telling the truth, however
    unpalatable you might find it.

    But feel free to post a public apology for your gross over-reaction to
    an entirely truthful statement.

    Personally, I couldn't care less, one way or the other. ;-)

    Aksherley, Bruce's statement

    "The illumination of the lit surface of the moon is exactly the same.
    Whether some of it is obscured by the earth, or not, makes no
    difference whatsoever to the level of illumination of the part that
    is lit by the sun. "

    is true as far as it goes because he seems to be talking about
    eclipses which are completely different to phases of the moon.

    The light /from/ the moon will vary with the phase.

    Oh sure, I'm not saying there is nothing you can do with shots
    /containing/ the moon but that is adding something to it.
