That Mysterious Globe

Even in the darkest of times, the light of the sun’s reflection will find us if we seek celestial guidance. Having been a keen amateur astronomer since the age of seven, when my father bought me my first telescope, my interest led me to discover that today’s full moon brings that mysterious globe closer to earth than it has ever been during my lifetime, or will be again until my 81st Birthday.  This fact makes it a ‘Supermoon.’

I learned, back then, a Polish fairy tale about two boys, brothers, who stole the moon one night when it was hanging over their house, like it does in my pics. Fortunately for the moon, and everything else for that matter, I chose to leave it where it was. If I remember correctly, those two boys got into a whole lot of trouble for their misdeed.

The pics, were taken in September, with today’s post in mind. I expected it to be way too cold for me to head outdoors with a camera on any night in November. I hope you enjoyed them.

With thanks to all readers, peace from Amras.

    1. Thank you David. I’m afraid that my physical condition doesn’t allow me to cope well with interviews at this time. It’s unpredictable nature forces me to cancel appointments many more times than not. I do have an optimistic nature, however, and never preclude the possibility of improvement in the future. Now that I am aware of “Closertotruth.com” I will be taking time to listen to the contributors; and, I will promote the debate regularly on social media. Thank you again David, and may I wish you well in your valuable work.
