Since our earliest recorded history, we have been looking up to the Moon for answers. We’ve sketched and painted the beautiful orb, and written poetry and love songs based on it. Given its size in our sky and its regular phases, the Moon has always had a significant impact on cultural language, art, mythology, and of course, calendars. Some believe that the Moon was created with the debris from a crash between Earth and another planet. I was born a Moon sign and I love that the first contact humans made with the Moon (unmanned Soviet Union spacecraft) was in 1959, 3 months after I was born. The Moon is in charge of our beautiful tides and the length of each day we are given. P.H. 2013 PHALL PHOTOS 2013
Today in the Northern Hemisphere, we have a 20-day-old waning gibbous Moon with 74% light.
Christmas day will bring us the last quarter of the Moon.
On New Year’s morning we get a new Moon to begin our year.
On Jan 15th we are presented with a full Moon.

Gorgeous moon images, Patti. Makes me want a better camera. I posted a year of sunsets today as a Christmas gift. You’ll remember that I complained about the image arrangement at WP and finally let it go. I especially love your moon – Venus images. Sending you blessings on a day that challenges us with unreachable expectations of joy. Let’s settle for beauty, love, solitude, and words.

I agree with settling for those goals:>)
Warm Hugs, my friend.
