Sky Watch, Moonshadow by Cat Stevans

You can see by the shape of the moon that this photo is taken at a place not far from the equator.In this case in North Queensland ! The farther you move from the equator the more the moon takes a vertical shape like ) , or (.

Good to be reminded that the world is not seen by others as we see it! If our respective leaders realized that, maybe there would be more peace in the world.

This is one of my favorite songs and it goes beautifully with your photo.

Cat Stevens was always one of my favourites, though I preferred another part of the day - "Morning has Broken".

I saw him on TV some time ago, and he still has some of the magic.

Love the song and the picture ...feeling more than a little uneducated to admit that I didn't realize that about the moon -- thanks for teaching me something (never too old to learn!)

Wonderful shot. I haven't heard that song in a long time. Thanks.
Did you get to see Jupiter and Venus aligned with the moon last night? It should continue thru the end of the month.

I didn't know that about the moon. I love learning new things!

This brings back many memories!

You so honour your late friend, Klaus. It is beautiful.

Cheers from Cottage Country!
