APOD: Lunar Corona over Cochem Castle (2013 May 25) Image Credit & Copyright: Babak Tafreshi (TWAN) http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130525.html Explanation: This bat-like apparition does not shine on clouds passing over Gotham city. Instead, the cloud bank in silhouette against a colorful lunar corona was spotted on the evening of May 18 over Cochem, Germany from the banks of the river Mossele. The lunar corona is formed as bright moonlight is diffracted by water droplets in thin clouds drifting in front of the lunar disk. Below it lies the region's historic Cochem Castle dating from the 11th century, and not Wayne Manor. Still, regardless of your location on planet Earth it is well worth scanning the evening skies this weekend, as a Full Moon rises and bright planets gather in the west. http://twanight.org/tafreshi http://dreamview.net/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130525 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0525
