First Quarter Moon
A few minutes after sunset on Monday 27th the First Quarter Moon showing the pareidolic features Lunar X (one third of the way down) and inverted Lunar V (same distance further) on the terminator was photographed almost directly overhead when the lighting and contrast between Moon and sky had increased enough to make the two features clearly visible.
