This past weekend the moon was full again. This becomes very obvious to me, when the night skies are clear around the time of the full moon. I live on the outskirts of the city and even though there are street lights nearby, I always have a clear view of the stars and the moon, if the clouds are absent.
I sleep underneath a rooftop window as well, therefore during clear nights, the starry skies and the moon is the last thing I see before closing my eyes. It always surprises me how much light the moon provides. Its illumination is so strong, it at times feels like a lamp has been left on in some of my rooms.
I have always found this cool silver disc very intriguing. Its glow is so enigmatic, it surface so near, yet so distant. Born in the sign of cancer, I am suppose to be effected by the moon, exhibiting moody behavior and transform according to it's different phases. I am not sure how true that is. All I know is that every time the moon is full, I can't help standing still for a while, gazing at it...
Now I only wish I could be able to capture the beauty of this natural satellite of the Earth on pictures as well. I can look at its relief surface and see it so clearly and vividly, yet all my camera sees is a white blob. I guess there still is no measure to the quality of images our own eyes can capture.
