Posts Tagged ‘super moon’

Standing on water, watching the Pink Super Moon rise, a guy jamming on a Flutophone while sky watchers flit around in their bank robber chic attire… yes, it was an epic night.

Watching this moon come over the eastern horizon was a transcendent experience.

As we carefully spaced, socially distanced sky watchers were hyper focused on the eastern sky, another light show was going on behind us in the west.

Driving north, I noticed the planet Venus blazing in the western sky.

Three of these lights are not the moon. Do you know what the others are?

Driving to work the next morning, I was in awe of the still full moon dangling over the water in the pink and purple heavens. I’d stopped to get photos of the moon at dawn the day before– it appeared as a gargantuan orb splashed with molten xanthic. By the time I found a place to park it had disappeared behind a bank of clouds. So I was especially grateful to get these early morning shots.

Only the first and last shots in this post were edited. The colors of this night and the following morning really were this varied and spectacular. In one week, we were blessed with a super moon, Passover, and Easter all at once. Surely that is no coincidence.


…it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky.

Psalm 89:37

Above the tower — a lone, twice-sized moon.
On the cold river passing night-filled homes,
It scatters restless gold across the waves.
On mats, it shines richer than silken gauze.

Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,
Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon
Spreading in my old garden . . . All light,
All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

Full Moon, Tu Fu

I love taking snapshots of the moon, especially through trees. Watching this full moon come up on the unseasonably hot first day of spring has been amazing. The trees provide theater, curtains, flirtatious framing.

Here in the Seattle area, not long after freezing temperatures, we experienced 78 degrees yesterday, our hottest winter day on record. Today was equally toasty, and perhaps the last of the dirty snow hiding in the corners of the yard finally melted.

Happy worm moon! Happy spring! חג פורים שמח
