The Moon is our closest companion in the sky: some 360.000
kilometres away, or as astronomers say: "only one light-SECOND
away". This means that light - which travels at a speed of roughly
300.000 kilometres per second - covers the distance between the moon and the
earth in just over one second. Wow.
The sky, the universe: I find it of a majestic magnitude. Surely the universe was no accident but - as the Bible tells us - God's own creation.
The moon changes day-by-day. From New Moon through First Quarter – Full Moon – Last Quarter – New Moon.
I am busy in collecting a day-by-day images collection: only the very young and the very old moon phases are missing: they are the most difficult because the sun is so close.
Also the LIBRATION of the moon is shown on this page.
