The Roundest Moon

The roundest moon of the year did not fall on the 15th night of the eighth lunar month (the day of the mooncake festival), but on the 16th (i.e. 15 Aug 2008), according to met. reports from overseas.

This was also the night that one could see the rare natural sight of the sun, earth and moon forming a straight line, if you're lucky.

At home...we saw a moon, a sun and the earth...we must be quite lucky. We even got to eat them!

They didn't quite form a straight line, but I guess that could be arranged, except that we've run out of earth...the yummiest flavour. Only half of earth is left, due to the effects of tummy warming and human mass destruction. >_<"

Thanks, ksn.

Yes, I like earthly browns...they remind me of earthly things like coffee, espresso, mocha, dark chocolate, mud pies...
