Marzo Luna Piena - March Full Moon

 

 

Last Saturday March 19th 2011 we saw all over the world the rare occurrence of a Super Full Moon. This was the moon’s closest encounter with Earth since December 12, 2008. The moon won’t come this close again until November 14, 2016.  I did try to get some photographs but sadly we did not have the clear skies here in Lazio that night. I did take a few the previous night, as a practice run and although not exactly what I had hoped for either as just these two to share with you. There are thousands of fantastic images of the March Full Moon available to browse on Flickr.com if you are interested.

I was trying to learn a little more about this phenomenon when I came across this video which is well worth watching for a scientific but easily understandable explanation.

The photos may be more than a little disappointing but I love this catchy dance music I found entitled ‘The Moon’. First in Italian with the words then a version in English.

Se mi dai il tuo amore
seguimi verso il sole
guardami non andare via
è un attimo che incontra la follia
Io vivrò nel tuo cuore
stringimi con passione
sentirai una voce che
per te sarà importante
Questa notte dimmi si
puoi rispondermi
è la luna che ti vuole qui
guarda un pò più su
nell'immenso blu
Vorrei stringerti e amarti baby
Amami per favore
se lo vuoi nasce un fiore
guidami verso la realtà
perchè il destino ha unito due metà
Riempimi d'emozione
ora che puoi sognare
sentirai il tuo cuore che
dirà di amarmi sempre
Questa notte dimmi si
puoi rispondermi
è la luna che ti vuole qui
guarda un pò più su
nell'immenso blu
Vorrei stringerti e amarti baby

  7. Love the moon photo. I tried to take a few pictures but did not have a tripod. Needless to say the moon was not round.

  8. It is so hard to take pictures of the moon-you did a brilliant job Linda! That dance music was great too.

    Hope you are enjoying the warmer and longer spring days. I am still (im)patiently waiting for Autumn to arrive here...it is still so hot!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  9. We saw the huge moon really well over our garden, because we have no other lighting around here. I tried with the photos, but no good I'm afraid. Yours came out really well! I really liked that dance music.
