There is an interesting connection with the face of the Moon and a few famous things that are dear to me. I'll give you a bit of history. Anyone who has been reading this blog for awhile might know that my favorite music is the band Queen. Well, Queen had an album back in 1977 called News Of The World. That album contained a couple of very famous songs; one was We Are The Champions, and the other was We Will Rock You. Even if you don't know the songs names, I'm sure you've heard them before. It's the cover of this album that I really want to talk about though.
On the cover of that Queen album is a picture of a giant robot. That robot has the same face as the moon! I won't post the album cover, but here is a link to it. Go ahead and take a look, the similarity is amazing! But that's not all! There's more to this story that even more of you might appreciate!
That famous robot was the droid named C-3P0. I'll give you another link so you can compare all three now.
After getting over a dozen pictures like this one last night, I ran into the house and decided to search the internet to figure out this problem. Since I don't want to take the credit for solving this one alone, I'm going to show you what it was I found. Here is a link that gives you directions for how to take a picture of the Moon.
Now I have one final very interesting thing for you!
While I was in a nice dark place taking my first batch of photos, I saw this huge halo around the moon! You can see it decently in this last picture, even though the picture is bad. The ring was so huge that I couldn't capture the whole thing; it just wouldn't fit in one shot. This was the best I had.
This is the first time I have ever noticed anything like this, so I decided to do another internet search to see just what this was. Guess what! I have another link for you! Here is a web page with an interesting explanation about this and a few other things.
The Moon. What a wonderful thing we have up in our night sky.
(I want to add one unrelated thing here. I have been very distracted lately, so I haven't always been keeping up well on this blog or any of your blogs. This is because I have been spending most of my home time reading, what is to me, a very important book. I like to take my time while reading this. When I'm finished, I will be back here much more often.)
