Photos of the Moon


People have watched it move through the stars since the earliest times, and modern earthlings have walked on its surface, yet the moon still holds an awe for us. Our wandering companion, moving through its phases and the constellations, has a beauty and arcane wonderment all of its own. It holds us all in amazement and appreciation, and reminds us that in the palpable universe, everything is intrinsically linked to the Cosmos. The moon's movements have been recorded at the 5,000-year-old Knowth monument.
