Such great heights… Riding the ferris wheel at night. Much different than the sunset ride we had been trying to set up. But on this ride, I was much more interested in who I was sharing the ride with, than what we could see that night. #misshimalready (at 15th Street Amusement Park)
My contribution to the multitude of moon pictures from tonight. Although none of the pics posted have done it any type of justice. I hope you were able to see it and experience it for yourself. Absolutely gorgeous. (at Virginia Beach Fishing Pier)

May you have enough money to pay your bills this month with a little extra left over for a bit of fun.
This is one of the nicest things to wish for someone
An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
“In five days I’ll be ninety-six years old. I never smoked, and I never had any stress. I was dumb and worked low-level jobs with no responsibility. I worked until I was eighty-four, with two jobs. I worked at an office until five o’clock, and then I went to work as a waitress—it was a happy job, feeding people. Then you take your uniform off, and your job is done. But somebody has to do the stressful jobs, too.”
“Do you have any regrets?”
“Oh, I’ve made lots of mistakes.”
“With education and jobs?”
“No, no. With people. And that hurts the most—the things you’ve said to people.”

hannah: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 25th November 2005.
Image runs from 32°S 201°E about 710 km due south across the Terra Sirenum highlands to 44°S 201°E. The Sirenum Fossae run across the top of the 2nd image. The 5th and 6th images show a central section of the 300 km-wide Newton Crater, including what looks like part of the central peak complex (notice dunes, dark blue, on the left hand side).
Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and one monochrome image for detail. Colour balance is not naturalistic.
