Waning Crescent Moon.
wait! what ? how come it is a crescent phase ? well, the crescent phase is cropped on the left side where you ca seen the bright thin line at the top and bottom of the image, however on the right side is the Earthshine Moon upclose, we have seen many earthshine moon but this view brings it more closer and cleaner. Its amazing to see the earthshine moon which almost looks like gibbous.
