Manage episode 353213983 series 3368088
There is no object in the night sky that is more storied than the moon. As a thin crescent it follows the setting sun over the western horizon or leads the way for the sun before dawn in the east. As the moon becomes full, it illuminates our night. The midnight full moon rises high in the sky and turns night into a wonderland of soft illumination. Near the horizon, the moon backlights the landscape with light and dark effects. Its surface features of dark and light areas form familiar shapes. The moon is no stranger to us but can still surprise and delight us with its many aspects. In this episode, we'll take a closer look at Earth's nearest neighbor.
