Moonscapes

A "Moonscape" is an image of the Moon with an Earthly foreground (trees, mountains, buildings, etc.). In other words, it is a landscape that features the Moon.

Earthshine

When the Moon is in the crescent phase, we can often see the rest of the Moon lite in a dull blue-gray glow called earthshine. This illumination is actually sunlight first reflected off the Earth, then to the Moon where it is reflected back.
