Image Details:

Cyclone Tauktae hitte India this week and there was a sudden change in weather and temperature, as a heavy rain storm ravaged the coastal lines. There were some clouds on 19th May 2021, evening, and I was able to witness this moon corona for quite a long time appearing and disappearing, as the clouds came and went. It was waxing crescent 47.5% illuminated as seen in the image. Had a good opportunity to capture this beautiful phenomenon.
