The following day, the Moon shifted towards the left. It is now very close to the Pleiades. I waited until clouds attenuate the glare of the Moon to snap. Strategic choice, because the Pleiades are not drowned in the Moon's halo, being visible through a hole in the clouds, while Mars, to the far right, is just leaving dense clouds which hid it. Lastly, some colored irisations (called corona) around the Moon bring a colorful touch.
