-- beautiful moon tonight

I was getting in my car after work when I noticed the moon -- almost full with just a sliver of blurriness at one edge. It was so breathtaking that I gasped out loud. I love it when it's low in the sky and looks so close. Tomorrow night it will be completely full. More info on space.com's nighttime sky calendar.

The moon as drawn by Galileo. More information at the American Institute of Physic's page on the Start of Scientific Cosmology (part of their History of Scientific Cosmology web exhibit).
