Spooky Laughing Moon!

Just in time for Halloween, this last Super Moon of 2023 (Harvest Moon) appears to be laughing at the world -- if you let your pareidolia self kick-in. In reality, what looks to be the mouth is a dark nebula type cloud that creepily appeared near the horizon as the Full Moon rose on the evening of September 29. Funny how if you let your mind see something you just can't not see it.

Photo details: Taken with a tripod mounted on Nikon Coolpix P900 camera; 2000 mm (cropped); ISO 800; f/6.5; 1/160 second exposure.
