Over The Moon
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
For those that don't know, there are four moon phases: New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon, and Last Quarter. A full moon occurs when the Earth, Sun and Moon are nearly in alignment, with the Earth in the middle. A Full Moon is when the moon has reached its zenith and forms a perfect silvery sphere in the sky. The Full Moon phase is known as a time for transformation, fertility, strength, power and love. The phase of the Full Moon lasts from 3 days before to 3 days after the actual full moon.
In case you missed it, the next full moon is predicted to occur on Sept. 26th.
Above is a pic I took last night and below are some great artistical interpretations of full moons and more moon fun. Lots of great moon images can be viewed on FLICKR and at other sites online! (Man...I feel overdue for a trip to a good museum...)
