"The Harvest Moon

The flame-red moon, the harvest moon,
Rolls along the hills, gently bouncing,
A vast balloon,
Till it takes off, and sinks upward
To lie on the bottom of the sky, like a gold doubloon.
The harvest moon has come,
Booming softly through heaven, like a bassoon.
And the earth replies all night, like a deep drum.

So people can't sleep,
So they go out where elms and oak trees keep
A kneeling vigil, in a religious hush.
The harvest moon has come!

And all the moonlit cows and all the sheep
Stare up at her petrified, while she swells
Filling heaven, as if red hot, and sailing
Closer and closer like the end of the world.

Till the gold fields of stiff wheat
Cry `We are ripe, reap us!' and the rivers
Sweat from the melting hills."

-Ted Hughes



Beautiful awesome footage OP,
And thanks for the poem 'mistermonculous' nice accompaniment.
Cheers

That's some awesome view.
Wish i could run really fast to the end of the horizon and see if i can jump over in time before it gets too high.



That is in a way a wish of many of us....

Jump over the moon!

Just the idea of it makes me smile, and laugh!

Oh, justs georgeous!

West Coast, thanks for sharing that photo with us!
I was not aware that we were in the Super Moon cycle right now,
as this footage is from March 2011, I just had never seen this before,
and wanted to share it!



Thank you for the clarification. So the video IS the same moon that I sat out in the cold for two hours to get a picture of!
Here is THAT picture from back in March:






Westcoast,

A stunning photo! Thank you for sharing that with us.
I am mesmerized by the moon when it appears as it does in the "perigee-syzygy"

The approaching full Moon is not a supermoon.

Sometimes Phage looking at something beautiful is enough.

No clarification neccessary


You beat me to it

It is a beautiful site, and thanks BurnTheShips. Another excellent thread. SnF

Thanks for the emphasis on the moon craters, I love to see the moon in all
of its glory, and its real and imagined "faces".

Violater1,

Thanks much! I cant help but think of the No Fly Zone that is now pursued by NASA!


No-fly zones will come into effect on the moon for the very first time by the end of this month! Why, even buffer zones that spacecraft may have to avoid will come into existence. The reason: avoiding any spraying of rocket exhaust or dust onto certain historical sites and artefacts on the moon.

The historical sites are of course the Apollo landing sites and artefacts present on the moon. And the “recommendations” are for preserving and protecting these historical sites. There are currently more than three dozen historical sites that preserve the more than four-decade-old remains.

“Apollo 11 and 17 sites [will] remain off-limits, with ground-travel buffers of 75 metres and 225 metres from each respective lunar lander,” states the July 20 guidelines of NASA. Science journal had obtained the guidelines. www.thehindu.com...

I've seen this like3times in my life where I live, "Peoria, Illinois". I've never witnessed it rising though, only in the afternoon while its setting.

It just becomes a massive orange ball in the sky. Really cool looking though!

I have seen a few full moons in the past looking practically from where the video was taken,

I must say none where ever as amazing as this video.

Very Nice reminds me of something a friend was strumming on guitar round fire I saw a Full moon in Brighton area enjoy:



Kind Regards,

Elf

Thank you for the beautiful footage


Ironically,despite living there I never had the vantage point to record the event (could be wrong but with the church in the foreground, and the dual carriageway/motorway, I would hazard a quess the footage was taken somewhere between Hangleton and Southwick/Lancing, overlooking Brighton), so its nice to see it now, and with such beauty.

My children and I we love the moon, and are always pointing it out in the sky during the day.

Will definately be showing my kids this later, nice find S+F

Thinking Cap,

Thank you for adding that video, having much footage from the same time
makes for a very interesting examination of the moon, its surface features!

Wow, so pretty! I think this is an ominous sign for something bad to happen. I really hope the Big One isn't coming to British Columbia.
