I'VE SEEN THE MOON

Recommended Posts

With my telescope I peered into the everlasting darkness of the night skies.
Slowly I caught the brightness from a corner and I manoeuvre till it was centred this brightness I caught.
Focusing, my heart skipped a bit, two bits and the third...
Then I saw,
The moon,
In her splendour...
It was like looking at the face of god.
She was grey,
She was bold,
She  was beautiful...
I love grey but...
Who would have thought
That grey can be so beautiful.
I was overwhelmed
By the enchantment of the moon.
And I heard myself saying
After a long moment of lunarhypnosis.
'I've seen the moon,

and the moon sees me...'

Is Venus the bright star that appears as an orb resembling a small half moon in the south-west morning skies when viewed with a telescope few hours before sun rise?

Sounds right 🙂

The free program Stellarium is excellent for identifying things you are not sure of: https://stellarium.org/

I loved how you told us about the moon. You should describe your views of Vunus that way too.

Very poetic and a pleasure to read! :)
