This dusk scene shows you the evening moon with an age of 1.6 just above a mountain ridge of the Southern Alps ranging at central Japan. I could appreciate such a clear crescent owing to the winter atmosphere with high transparency. The moon went down beyond the ridge just before six o'clock, and stars in the heavens had followed it.
