Stars Amongst the Moon

I went out last night during a clear night sky to try and take some pics of the stars with my new wide angle lens. I knew I'd have some difficulty doing so with the moon being out, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyways. 

The photos came out looking like early daytime with stars still in the sky, despite it being around 12:30-1am. 

Some lens flare off of the moon, which lit up the night sky like the sun.

The moon was so bright that it actually cast my shadow on the ground.
