Since this often requires the moon to be large enough for a silhouette, this trope tends to coincide with WeirdMoon. (It ''can'' be done without such trickery, provided you set the camera up a long way from the foreground object and use a powerful telephoto/zoom lens.)

* In ''Anime/KurauPhantomMemory '', the full moon looks awfully huge behind the flying silhouettes of Kurau [[spoiler:and later Christmas]], although it makes for lovely E.T.-like scenery, emphasizing the lonely mood.



* ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'': TropeCodifier at the very least; this is the iconic shot of the film, as seen in the page image.

* Many Christmas movies feature an ending scene where a silhouette of SantaClaus and his reindeer traveling away can be seen in the front of the moon. Played for drama in ''Film/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': Jack is out to give gifts in Santa Claus' stead and the army is trying to shoot him down; they get him when the clouds clear and he flies in front of the moon. [[spoiler:Of course, he's already dead, so he gets better.]]
