Shot from Kigali Rwanda Central Africa. Unusually clear sky that night, and the formation really jumped out at people. Our geographic location gave great symmetry, very striking! Sorry didn't have a tripod available. Used a Kodak Z1285 shooting with a 5x zoom.

My daughter Mili took these photographs from her SONY Handy-Cam 800x, of what she calls - a Smiley Moon.
