Ready for a change in perspective

First an image from early this morning. The crescent Moon shrinks as it swings towards the Sun for a total solar eclipse on July 2nd visible from Chile and Argentina.

This image was taken from Austin, Texas on 2019-06-26 at 09:45 UT. A month from now under the same lunar phase the 2019 Astronomy in Chile Educator Ambassador Program cadre will be heading to Chile to learn about the spectacular telescopes there.

A HDR composite imaged with a Sony a7iii with a Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s with 1.4 teleconverter. The Moon exposed at f/8 for 1/25 sec at ISO 100 with the best 8 of 200 images drizzle stacked in Autostakkert 3 and deconvolved in Lynkeos. The oak tree exposed at ISO 400 for 30 sec with 5 images stacked. Final HDR composite, crop, and exposure in Photoshop.

What does a view of the waxing crescent moon look like in Chile to those waiting for the eclipse or to the ACEAP team later in July ?

One of my reasons for making this trip is to gain a new perspective on astronomy in Chile. Thanks to some Photoshop manipulation, I can see that even the familiar Moon will take on a new slant.
