Before you ask, is this real? Well yes and no, this is a combination of the Waning Gibbious (Light-side) that I took this morning at 3am and the Earthshine (Dark-side) is the Waxing Crescent at the start of the moon's cycle. I used this as I just couldn't get a good long exposure of the dark-side with to much light bleeding over from the light side and a lot of noise. But due to the moons libration the dark-side does not accurately line up to the light-side.
(If anyone knows or has any ideas to getting the perfect earthshine I would love to know, thanks.)
