The Moon Can’t Prevent Forest Fires

The moon ain’t scared of a little fire! Asteroids bashed the lunar surface about 3.8 billion years ago. Molten blood seared the desolate world. Blistering rocks rained, tumbled, and pummeled—countless craters shattered the loony environment.

Keyfra kept her eye on the sky while a local forest fire polluted the sky with smokey pollutants. Did that stop her from taking a lunar portrait? Of course not!

A waxing gibbous moon has a habit of hogging the sky…and it can be seen during the day, evening or night—even if there’s a minor local catastrophe. Or a major local catastrophe. The moon doesn’t care. It was born in a catastrophe.

Thanks for keeping your eye on the sky Keyfra! Don’t get burned.

  1. Well done , again, Keyfra. I have planned something for this month’s full moon on Tuesday into Wednesday . I need….few clouds…and the determination to be up in the early hours. Here in the Hague, NL ,the weather is rather cloudy just now. Praying to the Gods again.

      1. The clouds ruined my view plenty of times, especially during the transit of Venus. Patience and determination are vital attributes. You seem to be dedicated, and I’m sure that will pay off in the long run.

        Thanks for submitting your photograph! Don’t forget the partial lunar eclipse on March 23!

      3. clouds obscured your view? Or did the moon set before you received a chance to observe it? I missed a few lunar eclipses the past few years (due to clouds).

      4. Hmmm…assuming it wasn’t cloudy out, then I’m going to guess the moon was really low on the horizon when the eclipse began, or the moon already set before the eclipse started or finished.
