Sky photography during a Full Moon night often results in strong illumination like day-light with blue sky nearly empty of stars. In this all-sky view of the beautiful Huelgoat village in Brittany of France, there are still several bright winter stars visible near the center of the image. The full moon brightness is over 10 times more than a quarter moon (50% phase)and several hundred times brighter than a crescent moon.

    Dear Marzieh,
    this photo is made from 15 different photos taken for a Virtual Reality view:
    For doing this, I stitch all the photos to get an equirectangular view of 360° large by 180° high. Then, a digital “Mirror ball” projection is made with Pano2VR to finally get this photo.
    I hope you understand the whole process. Regards.
