Moon!!!!! [Jun. 22nd, 2005|12:15 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |pleasedmoony]

Tonight is the giant moon!

Stolen from my cousin burntorangehorn :

http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2005/20jun_moonillusion.htm?list752450

So I'll be looking outside at about 9:20PM here!

Speaking of moons - I started a new painting late last night showing the phases of a total eclipse of the moon! Not sure how it's going to turn out or what else will be in the painting, but you can watch along with me HERE on my webcam.

I'll be painting in just a little bit!

Saw the moon last night. It was so gorgeous!! Can not wait to see what the end result of your moon painting looks like!

You, enabler, you! I ordered Buck Moon this morning from BPAL!

I'm not sure about England (looks like it just had the US times!). I'm worried now though because we are having rainstorms and it is so cloudy I don't know if I'll be able to see it.....

It's pretty long - when it's wet I can just about sit on it! A little past my waist maybe.

neat!!!
didja catcha glimpse of the picture I took last night of the moon here in Richmond? It was all deep fiery reddish-orange early on the horizon & as it lifted into the sky got lighter & lighter, turning yellow. I was awe-struck. its posted in my journal...along with a few bpal reviews. ;-) I was ready to pounce on the postman today thinking he had my order...but *sigh* it was only a belated anniversary gift of edible goodies from Michael's parents.

thanx. I was surprised by it...every time I've ever tried to take pics of the moon it just turns out to be a glowing orb with no shadows.

The actual moons I drew around the lid to my ground cinnamon shaker - LOL! Sometimes I draw freehand, but in this case I really wanted to make sure that they were all the same size!

Re: very cool!

Thank you Lorraine!!!

They're dark opaque wings - kind of like deconstructed batwings maybe, hehe. I'll be scanning it in shortly to show it off!

Ah I love that icon.
Hmm I am going to peek outside. Does this also count for Holland? I mean the moon illusion? A pity we can't registrate what our eyes see on camera huh?

Good luck with painting. It's looking so wonderful again!!

wheres the moon?

I just drove out to see the moon and had to drive back empty handed. No moon, I guess the 9.45 pm was not correct on the site as there is no moon yet. I will try again before I go to bed. Jasmine you should have my final paypal payment? can't wait to frame the portrait!

:} found the moon

Yep it's shining bright, large and white. Though not as large as my crazy imagination! I missed the moon last few nights as I also live in the woods. I hope one day to live up on a little moutain top so I can see the moon and the stars I really miss seeing them as close as I used to when I lived on the ocean front. Then they seemed so close you could raise up your hand and almost touch them.
