Photo taken: March 22, 2018
I have a broken slat in the blinds over my computer room window that happens to intersect with the path our orbiting and apparent-orbiting celestial bodies take across the sky. Usually it’s the sun that blinds me in the very early evening on my days off. The moon’s a bit trickier to catch since I have to actually turn around and notice it during its brief moment of syzygy with the unintentional peephole. I once caught the full moon staring in at me on Christmas morning, no less. Earlier this year, I happened to look at just the right time to catch the waxing crescent, and somehow got a sharper picture of it through a hole in my blinds than I’ve ever gotten of the moon taken outdoors. That’s a photo I can’t take when there’s leaves on my oak tree… those are two small twigs you see silhouetted across the lunula.
