Lunar majesty

MoonsetW

A slender crescent moon sets over UC Davis and the Dairy Road water tower on Friday evening. This marked the end of a January that saw two new moons, the second one sometimes called a 'black moon.' It also precedes a February that will not have a new moon, meaning the moon will be visible for some part of each day of the month. Wayne Tilcock/Enterprise photo

    Nice photo. Is that a special filter that produces the star effect with the lights?

    Thanks. This was shot through a screen used to keep birds out of the staircase at Sproul Hall on campus. The screen combined with a large telephoto lens gives a similar result to special effects filters, which have a screen-like design etched into them.

    Thanks for describing how you got the shot. Pretty clever.
