First, I just want to thank my husband for helping me carrying heavy stuff. Actually I was waiting for the Jupiter visibility in our place. We have a lot of trees. I don't want to cut them, so I just look for a spot and I jotted down the time when it is visible in that certain location. I set up my telescope but I saw this beautiful and reddish color of Waxing Gibbous Moon about to set so I get my camera with telephoto lens and capture the moment. The color is maybe because there are still wild fire out there. I did not change it.

One of the most important points to include in my photo, is there is really fantastic beauty of the night sky and helps us through this difficult time of pandemic, all we need to do is go out and watch it and take care of our planet and always be part of the solution on how we can solve this climate change. Remember we are all in this together, we need to love our only planet so next generation can still enjoy it.
