Astrophotographer John Stetson produced this striking image of the full moon over Cape Elizabeth, Maine, February 7, 2012. He adds: "The earth's atmosphere, acting as a lens, provided some interesting features to February's Snow Moon. A green rim can be seen on top of the moon. Refracted light has also provided the red color on the lower limb of our moon. The moon's size, shape, and surface color have also been affected by our atmosphere. And, of course, the moonlight has also been refracted such that an upsidedown image appears; that is the Etruscan-vase."
