smiling moon

Last night when i looked up in the sky i was amazed to find the sky so blue and even more amazing is seeing the moon smiling back at me!

I didn't know that there is such a thing as the smiling moon phenomenon which happens every 48 years, and boy i am so glad that i look up and saw it! "“Astronomers say Venus and Jupiter and a crescent moon will form a smiley face tonight, with the planets forming the eyes and the moon forming the mouth. Venus and Jupiter have appeared side by side in the evening sky over the last week or so, but tonight will be the best night to see the “face” appear." Ambo even encouraged you guys to look up in the sky :)

"Baby, i asked the moon to guide you and comfort you... and he said yes he'll look down upon you for me and he even managed to smile for you. Whatever it is that is bothering you, please take comfort that the moon and i will always be here for you."

Amazing, I saw the same thing that you captured with you camera in Southern California!

A message to Anomymous - I hope you get well, but if it is any consolation...most of us who are, either healthy or sick, will not see it again. Forty eight years is a looong time by any standard measure of Time, except astronomical.

Nice, it's great that you caught it :) I, on the other hand, didn't even see it. :(
