Super Moon

As most of you, we experienced a Super Moon. The moon was 221,565 miles away, the closest it’s been to the Earth since 1993.

Did you feel the pull?

Did you run into any werewolves?

Bubo flew all night long; she traveled across Prospect Park and swooped south, skimming the sand at Coney Island. She met up with friends in The Green-wood Cemetery and when she came home, just before dawn, she was glistening with dew and moon bits.

I sat on the Widow’s Walk, basking in the moonlight, trying to identify constellations in the bright glow of this Super Moon. It made me smile to see so many people step outside and stop on the sidewalks to stare at the moon. We need to stop and stare at the moon more often, super or not.

Bubo apparently had very vivid dreams. While I herded the worms in the rain-soaked garden this morning, Bubo sat on my shoulder and told me her dreams. Have you ever heard the dreams of a great horned owl? If you have, then you know what my day has been like.

One Response to Super Moon

  1. Oh it was so wonderful to read about Bubo’s moon-night adventures. We did not realize it was a super moon, but that night we found ourselves with friends walking long stretches of the night through Berlin, stopping to look up at the moon, which seemed brighter than ever – until we caught our moon shadows in Görlitzer Park, which inspired us to sing moon shadow songs by Cat Stevens (the American) and Mike Oldfield (the Germans). Clearly we also had had some moon shine. We didn’t get to go to sleep until the sun came up, the owl was asleep and the day birds began to chirp. It’s good to know we all had our adventures around the globe.
