    The Moon... It rises and sets

    I love sun rises/sets. The moon also rises and sets, most don't even think of it.

    The moon rises and sets differ dramatically from the time of the sun. The moon works off the full moon cycle and the set for example may vary an hour or two from the night before.

    Camera captures are only a couple of times a month and in foggy SF; only a few times a year. Short winter days allow for more captures.

    Now I prefer the moon because you can capture its texture. I start the thread with a few:

    The first is a sunset in the afternoon, the second a moonset in the morning both shot to the west of my balcony





    The moon , like the sun moves across the horizon during the year.Noisy, but what the hell...

    Rags and Jeff,

    These are really nice shots. I shot these over Monument Valley and couple of years back with a Nikon Coolpix 5700. Cropping involved in image 2.

    We have all seen the "front side" of the moon. Thanks to NASA, we can all now see the "back side" of the moon:

    For something slightly less technical and a lot less serious....
    I have to say the far side of the moon was great--had not seen that before.

    Feh.

    Pink Floyd covered it in 1973.

    All that you touch
    All that you see
    All that you taste
    All you feel.
    All that you love
    All that you hate
    All you distrust
    All you save.
    All that you give
    All that you deal
    All that you buy,
    beg, borrow or steal.
    All you create
    All you destroy
    All that you do
    All that you say.
    All that you eat
    And everyone you meet
    All that you slight
    And everyone you fight.
    All that is now
    All that is gone
    All that's to come
    and everything under the sun is in tune
    but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.


    ...

    I think by about .0001 seconds in, my radio is cranked as loud as possible. I love that album! In fact, it's about time to listen to it again..

    If you can see it... The moon is gone.
