200° When I was a boy I was given a small telescope and I remember spending several weeks observing the Moon with it. I became fascinated with the Moon, and I still consider it my lonely friend that quietly hovers over our world. When I see the features on the Moon through a telescope I get a sense of being there, floating above the surface.
If desire could have helped me fly then I would have been to the Moon and back again. I don’t think people understand how special our Moon is and what it has meant to life on Earth.
If the Moon is visible I almost always look up at it. It always reminds me that I’m part of the cosmos.
