I seem to have a fascination with the moon and other celestial events these days. I found myself on the porch at 5 a.m. this morning watching just as the total eclipse occurred. Of course I tried to take a picture of it with my puny camera. It was framed by the tree (as the other moon picture shows), and even though it isn’t much of a picture, it is enough to tickle my mind to recall it. So it will do for me.
Although I will not be crawling into a space rocket to go to the space station or beyond, looking at the moon and stars helps me put things in perspective. We live at a location where it is easy to see the bigger world beyond our personal universe. I wish everyone could have such a perspective.
