I visually saw with my eyes an optical illusion of a double moon resurface in the sky as it was nearing the total eclipse right before I shot this picture which confirmed what I saw. However by that time of the night I wasn't sure if it were my eyes seeing double or if the camera wasn't functioning properly because of the freezing temperatures...I decided to keep it anyway.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    Thank you for your comments....I thought at first as I mentioned in my narrative that my eyes were deceiving me but my husband said he also saw the double moon in the sky. .It didn't stay that way for very long..I am glad that my camera cooperated to record it.

    Thank you for all of the comments and kind words which i appreciate but I was given an email notice by the JPG staff administration that my photo of the double moon did not fit the rules for Abstract Macro and it was removed from the theme..At least it had received a hot rating before it was removed on January 30th and had great response which I am grateful for. However I need to use something else for abstract that does fit, Just wanted to let you know why I am not able to use this for the challenge. But that's how we learn to do better.
