Glide To the Moon


Aymen Ibrahem, Senior Astronomy Specialist, submitted this great photo showing the moon and a bird he believes to be a falcon. Aymen notes: "This clever bird performed graceful glides, and then remained floating (almost stationary) for several minutes. I obtained the photo on 19 July 2006, during an observing session I performed in the Plaza of Bibliotheca Alexandrina, obtaining photos of cloud patterns and interesting optical atmospheric phenomena.
