Moon over St. Charles

A gibbous moon presides over the city of St. Charles, Illinois as the last coral hues of the sun fade slowly away. An observation platform that stretches into the Fox River from the riverwalk gives the impression of looking at the downtown area from the center of the river.

To the left is the city's municipal building, its illuminated art deco tower rising eighty feet over the city. More about that tomorrow.

Two points for use of the word "gibbous."
