The Full Moon on Saturday night will be even more spectacular because of the specific angle of earth (ecliptic) in this latitude. However,we may not get to see it due to rain.

SCIENCE ODDITIES
Here is an amazing set of photographs stumbled upon, which has (warning)
a disturbing set of adverts related to weapons scrolling at the top, but is, none the less,
WELL WORTH SEEING
THERE ARE 19 PHOTOS from ALL OVER THE WORLD THEY are STUNNING

ABOUT THE MOON
The article I read detailing all the debris we humans have left up there, and are never going to retrieve--The first mission to the moon--the last mission of the space shuttle--That there are already commercial space flights--That there will be 'honey-moon' possibilities in the near future, and real estate battles about who gets to develop the land, and endless patent litigation over who gets to have resources rights when extracting them becomes affordable.

MYTHOLOGY
Considering the way we have always tried to organize the vastness of our universe 
to suit our need to understand it all,
to make the immensity more manageable for our limited neural circuitry.

A FEW INNOCENT PLEASURES
 For Anyone With Time To Indulge

ONE
The relief laughter brings to overly serious self reflection, I watch 
Laurel & Hardy doing a soft shoe to 
  "Shine On Harvest Moon"
A classic musical number from
"The Flying Deuces"
 * 
TWO
"Harvest Moon"
Unfailingly an evocation of loving lust 
 by Neil Young
*
THREE
The sensuality of the women in scenes from
"Dancing at Lughnasa"
An embodiment of my ancestors breaking out of stultifying
religious and cultural restrictions to express their Pagan roots.
One of my all time favorite movies.
Simple Synopsis
Five unmarried sisters make the most of their simple existence in1930's rural Ireland
Wonderful Cast
Gerard McSorley ... Narrator (voice)
Meryl Streep... Kate 'Kit' Mundy
Michael Gambon... Father Jack Mundy
Catherine McCormack... Christina 'Chrissy' Mundy
Kathy Burke... Margaret 'Maggie' Mundy
Sophie Thompson... Rose 'Rosie' Mundy
Brid Brennan... Agnes 'Aggie' Mundy
Rhys Ifans... Gerry Evans

 A Few Tasty Bits To Wet The Appetite
 1. The "dancing prohibition" is introduced when brother Jack returns from Africa, a priest transformed by his wider knowledge of life, "gone Pagan" they say.
2. The wayward father returns-love blooms anew.
3. Freedom breaks loose-lovers are reunited.

"Mr Moonlight"
A Beatles Song Cartoon To Finish

TOMORROW
(I should say "later today" since I'm posting Friday past Midnight)
I'm plan to put plants in a garden soothing my weary self of all this moon madness.
Then, perhaps, I'll walk to the East river and give it a  good howl for friendship's sake,
for now I'm just holding reflective light till sunup.
