This is the image of the overexposed moon with Jupiter below it. Zooming the image one can see the moons of Jupiter , though not free of star trails. The original position of the moon is overexposed but the lens flare created another replica of the moon, an inverted image right below the position of the moon near the tree line, which surprisingly show the lunar details. I was awestruck by looking at this optical effect and then got to know that the inverted replica matches the way moon looked at the southern hemisphere at that particular time!! Amazing isn't it!!
