I'm atop the Saint Michel de Brasparts Mountain in the Monts d'Arrée. Tee wind push the fog in the valley over my head. Due to those tiny droplets, the Quarter Moon display a poor colored corona. The Moon is masked by the steeple and cast some strange rays.
On the lower left are Castor and Pollux, Alpha et Beta Gemini. On the right of the steeple, three vertical stars closed the constellation. The amateur would have noticed the faint nebulosity of the star cluster M35 on the right.
