A shot of the moon through a window that faces manhattan-east with camera aimed to the northeast. Moon rises, occulted by church spire. The reflected image's brightness is attenuated beautifully to make out the mare and other lunar features.

Here is Orion rises, camera is looking out the same manhattan-east window, but now points to celestial south east.
