Supermoon and The Three US Flags

Supermoon and The Three US Flags

In downtown Newark, New Jersey

On Saturday, July 12, 2014

Supermoon rises

Between two buildings

In downtown Newark. New Jersey

The three US flags

Wave with gentle wind

Moving along

The supermoon shows her beauty

Greeting the earth

With the flags waving on

Hello, Supermoon

We welcome you

Supermoon radiating your beauty

To be admired

Supermoon drifting

Into the darkness

The cloud swallows her

Bit by bit till

She is gone

Lonely

Three US flags

Without the moon

Still waving

With the wind

Waiting for the next evening

The moon will arrive

Hoping that the US flags

Will be waving along

On Saturday, July 12, 2014 John and I went to do some food shopping after we closed our shop after 6:00 pm.  I told John that I would like to go to Jersey City by the Hudson River to video the super moon rising.  But after we finished our shopping we looked at the sky.  It was so cloudy; looking like it was going to rain any minute.  So we changed our plan and tried to think of where we should go in Newark to be able to view the super moon.  John suggested that high ground is better than lower ground.  John needed to go to the pottery studio to cover the clay he used in teaching his summer pottery class at Rutgers University.  The pottery studio is on the fifth floor of Bradlely Hall, the art building.  John said the pottery studio will be a good place to see the super moon.  The pictures above were viewed from Rutgers University pottery studio on the fifth floor of art building where john teaches a summer pottery class.  Some of the pictures are poor quality due to my inexpensive camcorder and visible obstructions from cloud and moisture in the sky, I used Adobe Photoshop to enhance and intensify some of the photos for clarity.

“Supermoon” my video on YouTube I produced last year.

“Fly me to the moon, and let me play among the stars. Let me see what spring is like, on Jupiter and mars. In other words, hold my hand, ———–”  While I was editing my pictures for the Supermoon video Nat King Cole’s recording of, Fly me to the moon was echoing in my ears.  I love his voice and music.  It is my honor to combine my video with his song. 

I was lucky taking the picture of the Supermoon on Sunday, June 22, 2013.  I tried to take pictures of Supermoon again on Monday, June 23 which was supposed to be the best day of the full moon but the sky was so cloudy because of so much moisture in the air.  I saw no moon.  I tried again until June 26 there was no moon appearing in the sky only dark blankets of clouds.
