Awesome job Bron! I'm in Vic and unfortunately it was too cloudy here for us to see the whole event. My sister rang from New South and was describing it for me! LOL Tis OK though, we saw the last one and we'll see the next one! ;)

@amy: Wow! Love your enthusiasm amy!! It's my first try at layers! I have Photoshop Elements No1. It's simple to use and basic - much easier than other PS programs but has everything I need at the moment.
I created a separate layer for each moon picture then sized and copied each image. I swapped to the move tool so when I pasted in the moons they were able to be moved. Then I arranged them in chronological order. I tried to do an arc like the rising of the moon but the moons would have had to have been too small so the circle was a compromise. I flattened the image, then did dodge and burn to blend the dark backgrounds! That's it!! cheers Bron
