April 2020 Pink Moon

Even under lockdowns the moon’s still up in the sky watching over Earth. Imagine how many tales, secrets she could share and tell from being Earth’s constant companion. How many lost civilisations she could say they collapsed due to a pandemic as the nature took back cities?

    Lovely moon pictures – I often think about what it would be like to be on the moon, watching the earth revolve and undergo “reverse” phases.

      It’s amazing how our minds go wild with imagination! And just for asking why the sky is how it is created physics, astrophysics, quantum physics, myths, tales of creation, aliens, looking for answers to everything!
