The Moon Giant

Born from an oak was a giant bloke
Whom Death took to the moon’s yolk
He lived on the moon and became as big
He ate the stars that taste like twig

He heard below the boasts of men
With loving women and children
Curiosity laid in shallow skin
Then envy came like an evil twin

He leaned too far to peek below
The death of many, he would bestow
One small step and one big fall
Was all it took to kill them all

He died as he fell where people dwell
Birthing a sea with a bloody smell
The earth felt pain and cried for the slain
The Sea of Bones became its name

TODAY - Saturday, February 6, 2016

This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or

New Moon Illumination: 0% January 8 Waning

TODAY - Sunday, January 10, 2016

The Moon today is in a New Moon phase. During this phase the Moon is to close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. Because of this the night sky is darker and an excellent time to view other celestial objects. Like the Full Moon, a New Moon happens at a very specific time when the sun and moon have the same ecliptic longitude and it can be measured down to the second it occurs.
