Howling at the moon

This composite proves that yes, I got out of bed at 2:30 am to watch the moon last night. Thankfully, the world didn't end.


As I stood there freezing my Nikon off, it occurred to me that this show would have been much more spectacular if actually viewed from the moon.

Thank Chris. We were ready (and in the HOT TUB) at 10:30 pm our time. . . but apparently we were wrong about the time, because nothing happened and we got hot and tired, and went to bed. I knew someone would take great photos!

Awesome!!! Makes me wish I'd gotten up at 3 am to see for myself (almost).

A friend just sent me this in honor of the occasion. It is gloomy but I love it:

Thy shadow, Earth, from Pole to Central Sea,
Now steals along upon the Moon's meek shine
In even monochrome and curving line
Of imperturbable serenity.
How shall I link such sun-cast symmetry
With the torn troubled form I know as thine
That profile, placid as a brow divine,
With continents of moil and misery?

--Thomas Hardy
