Starry Starry Night: Celestial Lights & The Ancient Moon

A breath-taking masterpiece being painted in the sky over the South Pole. 'The Southern Lights'...like brush strokes from the Master's hand… 

 

The sacred night makes me think of my favorite impressionist and one of my favorite songs...”Starry, starry night…Paint your palette blue and gray…Look out on a summer's day,... With eyes that know the darkness in my soul….”  

“…Shadows on the hills... Sketch the trees and the daffodils…Catch the breeze and the winter chills…In colors on the snowy linen land…”  



 

“Now I understand what you tried to say to me…How you suffered for your sanity…How you tried to set them free…They would not listen…they did not know how…Perhaps they'll listen now…”   



“Don’t tell me that the sky is the limit, when there are footprints on the moon…” Sure looks beautiful setting behind our blue planet, maybe one day we’ll be daring enough to go back.  



The gorgeous full moon from orbit, with the soft blue glow from my favorite planet! I hope our kids and grandkids are explorers, and go back one day...in peace.   



The view from Earth orbit of the Lunar Eclipse during Saturday’s beautiful full moon…the eclipse in progress with the Earth’s shadow moving across the surface of the moon, simply breath-taking! The Master’s handiwork…  



 

The dreams that we dare to dream really do come true. One day…one glorious day…we will return in peace for all mankind.
