lol that helps. it also shows that this wasn't a time lapse as originally thought (or at least not one long enough for the moon to explain the
anomaly in the photo). Kudos
What we have here is pretty interesting now that I'm seeing the full photo. Is it possible that it could be a double exposure of the time lapsed
crescent moon over the night image of the city? Not really sure.
I still think that the actual size of the object is consistent with what the size of the moon would be.
In order for the anomaly to be the result of the time lapse, as I stated before, this exposure would've needed to be hours long since the moon
travels only about one of it's diamaters across the sky every hour. By that time the stars would've moved considerably in the shot (or at least
enough to be obvious). Pretty odd photo..
