The moon is at her full, and riding high,
Floods the calm fields with light.
The airs that hover in the summer sky
Are all asleep tonight
~ William C. Bryant
In Costa Rica, they say that if you can see a ‘halo’ or ring around the night moon, you will get three or four days of slow but steady rain – and you can see a distinct halo in this first photograph.
This photograph was taken in Korea at a Full Moon Festival. The light of the fire and the smoke gives the stars a golden hue, and they stand out with the moon as if they were its offspring.
The moon is the fifth largest satellite in our solar system and the Earth’s only natural satellite, measuring at one quarter of the size of our planet.
