Last night, as all in blogland will by now know, was the closest the moon has been to the Earth since I was forty three years old…….I’m glad it was behind cloud here as that was not a good year. It doesn’t alter the fact that I’m green as a Martian with envy looking at all the wonderful pictures.
Gibbous Moon through trees on Christmas Eve last year……………the same moon we eclipsed………….had to be we only have the one. Is that how one spells Gibbous? I always want an (I) in it. I know it has one………after the two Bs or Bees. I meant.
Stars over Finchale Abbey. I took ages setting this up to get Polaris dead centre then I recomposed the shot and forgot why…….. it’s moved, cos it has, dumb cluck I am it’s the only stationary star visible from the northern hemisphere. the world for that matter.
We move it doesn’t, well it does a wee bit…………..sometimes I think if I swam to the bottom of a pond and crawled under a stone I’d be mentally challenged by the creatures I’d find. I ought to seriously think about a change of location to the southern hemisphere they don’t have this problem. The southern cross is roughly south. Good enough for Aussies…….place is so big it would be hard to miss Australia! If one has found it then surely there are road signs…………..there are aren’t there?
Congratulations to all of you that managed moon shots. I love them.
We are off to Derbyshire for a few days but hopefully will have time for some snaps. Have a good week.
