Full Hunter's Moon at Perigee.
My mom was telling me about the full moon tonight. Apparently tonight's full moon is a special treat because it is happening a mere 356,753 km from the earth. This low fly by happens every 14 lunar months or 1.13 years.
She said the moon shine would be bright, but I was not expecting this.
All these images were taken by moon light with a
Nikon D40X at 30 Seconds / F 6.3 (or so) .
A look at the neighborhood.
Indian Peaks and the continental divide .
I can't help but hum Cat Steven's anthem "Moon Shadow" tonight.
Cat Stevens - Moonshadow
Oh, I'm bein' followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if.... I won't have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if.... I won't have to cry no more.
And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if.... I won't have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if.... I won't have to talk...
Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?
The ghost who lives on the mountain top.
