Waxing crescent moon Apr 10. 
Lower 2 shots at 7:53pm with moon position above clouds photo.
Upper two photos at 8:45pm x10 periscope camera ISO-200 demonstrate that:
Moonshine = Sunshine + Earthshine
First shot is 1 sec; 2nd shot is 4 sec showing "earthshine" .. light reflected off earth and shining on the dark part of the moon and reflected back to us. Jupiter at lower left.
"It is also sometimes called ashen glow, the old Moon in the new Moon's arms, or the Da Vinci glow, after Leonardo da Vinci, who explained the phenomenon for the first time in recorded history."
