Lunar Moon

I had a great time taking photos of this moon.  Being present at night time, the skies are black except for the lunar moon which is full in breadth and appearance.  There is a beige tinge to the revolving rock around the Earth.

Did you know that the Farmer’s Almanac has different names for the moon depending upon which month occurs?  They are as follows;

January: “Wolf Moon” also “Old Moon”

February: “Snow Moon”, also “Hunger Moon”

March: “Worm Moon”, “Crow Moon”, “Sap Moon”, “Lenten Moon”

April: “Seed Moon”, “Pink Moon”, “Sprouting Grass Moon”, “Egg Moon” “Fish Moon”

May: “Milk Moon”, “Flower Moon”, “Corn Planting Moon”

June: “Mead Moon”, “Strawberry Moon,” “”Rose Moon”, “Thunder Moon”

July: “Hay Moon”, “Buck Moon”, “Thunder Moon”

August: “Corn Moon”, “Sturgeon Moon”, “Red Moon”, “Green Corn Moon”, “Grain Moon”

September: “Harvest Moon”, “Full Corn Moon”,

October: “Hunter’s Moon”, “Blood Moon”/”Sanguine Moon”

November: “Beaver Moon”, “Frosty Moon”

December: “Oak Moon”, “Cold Moon”, “Long Nights Moon”

Moon through Palm Trees

This photographic shot was taken in the evening while we enjoyed a Luau on Oahu, Hawaii.  The moon is almost hidden by the palm trees even though it is fully in the sky.  Who doesn’t like a full moon?  There is something spectacular in seeing the whole moon light up the night sky.  One of the most amazing things for me is the way the lunar appearance affects entire oceans with ensuring the pull and withdrawal of the waters surf.

Moon Craters

This is a photo of the moon that I took still early in the morning while the sun was up on the other side.  The moon is shown here in most of its glory with moon craters and the Seas of Serenity and Tranquility.  These seas are also called Mares and include such great names as Sea of Vapors, Waves, Storm and Crisis.

The moon is the only natural satellite of Earth.  It is the 5th largest moon in our solar system.  The moon is in synchronous rotation to the Earth which means that the same face of the moon faces Earth because of the trajectory and orientation of the rotation relative to the Earth.  I think this is fascinating.
