Abstract : A brief, journalistic account is given of a successful attempt to photograph the lunar disk by earthshine. The exposures were made at high altitude in North Pimar. Photometric scanning of the plates revealed that certain areas of the lunar surface, situated in the eastern and northeastern extremes, have an increased brightness under earthshine.
