MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: FULL MOON OVER JUPITER

JUPITER, FL MOONRISE

JUPITER, FL MOONRISE

As well as sunsets, I have a real “thing” for the moon and also reflected images.   So this photo satisfies all three as it was taken just after sunset, with the rising full moon and the trees and golf course nicely reflected.  Taken November 2011, The Estuary at Jupiter Dunes, Jupiter, Florida.

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: BULLAUN STONES, CO. KERRY

This bullaun is called the “Rolls of Butter” and dates back to about 3500 BC.  It is the only multiple stone bullaun so far discovered, anywhere in the world.  It’s located near Bonane, County Kerry, Ireland.  Its purpose is a bit of a mystery but the placement of the wells mirror the lower part of the constellation of Orion as well as Sirius.  There is an amazing number of astronomical  features throughout the area, including stone circles, stone rows, standing stones etc.

As always, click on photo to see  a larger image.
