Super Perigee Moon

"Super Perigee Moon"  Picture taken from our dock on March 19, 2011.  Moon just visible on the horizon as it begins ascent into night sky.

Quotes from astronauts:
"From the moon, the Earth is so small and so fragile, and such a precious little spot in that Universe, that you can block it out with your thumb.  Then you realize that on that spot, that little blue and white thing, is everything that means anything to you - all of history and music and poetry and art and death and birth and love, tears, joy, games, all of it right there on that little spot that you can cover with your thumb.  And you realize from that perspective that you've changed forever, that there is something new there, that the relationship is no longer what it was. "
