Six at a blow–Coloured Connotations….


The first day of my photographic exhibition “Coloured Connotations” resulted in me selling 6 of my photographs.  This feat brought into mind a story I read a long time back, while in school of a tailor and “seven at a blow” – the link to the story is given below:

This prompted the title of this post Smile

Super Moon 2012

Super Moon 2012

This evening, the night sky was something special. The moon made its largest, most stunning appearance of the year—an event known to scientists as “the perigee-syzygy of the Earth-Moon-Sun system” and to the popular skywatching public simply as the “supermoon.” As one of the most spectacular supermoons in years, the moon will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than when it is on the far side of its orbit.

Why does the moon sometimes appear larger, and sometimes smaller? The answer lies in the fact that its orbit around Earth is elliptical, so its distance from us varies—it ranges from roughly 222,000 to 252,000 miles away each month. On Saturday, the moon will reach what is known as the perigee, coming as close as it ever does to the Earth, just 221,802 miles away. At the same time, it will be a full moon, with the entirety of its Earth-facing surface illuminated by the light of the sun.
