"There is no there there"

These photos of the moon look a lot like the moon.
Funny how it is the Moon looks much better from a distance, such as from the earth, and how it's image, both beautiful and dark and barren has been become entrenched in human language, music, religion, and you name it. Harvest moon, Moon River, Blue Moon of Kentucky, Moonlight Serenade, Man in the Moon, moonshine, and on and on.

"The Moon is the first milestone on the road to the stars"--Arthur C. Clarke

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Pink Floyd

"Ten years ago the Moon was an inspiration to poets and an opportunity for lovers. Ten years from now it will be just another airport."

Emmanuel G. Mesthene

Now that image is beautiful
