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.
