11 Aug / Supermoon over Christchurch
Tonight there’s a beautiful yellow Supermoon hanging over Christchurch (and probably other places as well). I’d love to post a photo but unfortunately my camera doesn’t see exactly what I do – not really into the optical illusion that my mind is currently grooving on. Keeps taking a picture of a tiny flat white satellite. Not. Even. Trying.
Apparently it’s going to be twenty years or so until the moon is orbiting this close to the planet again – my partner keeps gleefully referring to this as my “last chance to see it in my lifetime” opportunity. Considering he’s nine years older I intend to have the last laugh on that one.
So in summary, instead of writing today I’ve been staring out the window at the moon. Because, science.
