The Astro Biniou Club was out among the palm trees of the French Riviera for this unique date... or is it the Moon?

During the totality, the stars are visible in the neighborhood of the 'Full Moon'! And since that was a very dark Moon during totality in my opinion, I was able to record the Moon and many stars of the constellation Lion as well. The brightest star in the image is 59 Leo (magnitude 5).

At this longitude the atmospheric haze prevented us from seeing the moon until it came out of earth's shadow.
