"You G*d are the Compassion, the Strength, the Beauty, the Victory, the Splendor, and the Foundation of everything in Heaven and on Earth. " (1 Chronicles 1:29)

I see Your Face in All Nature that I photograph. - Joy Krauthammer

"And God created the two great lights, the sun to serve during the day and the moon to serve during the night...And God saw that what He created was good (tov)." Bereshit 1:16, 18

"G*d made the moon for the festivals, the sun knows the time of its coming." Psalms 104:19 Perek Shira

The rabbis taught: He who sees the sun starting on its new cycle, the moon in its power, the planets in their orbits, and the signs of the zodiac in their orderly progress should say, ‘Blessed be God who wrought the work of creation.’ - Babylonian Talmud, Berachot 59b

How glorious is Your Name in all the earth, for which You bestow your majesty upon the heavens. When I behold Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou has established.  Tehillim - Psalms Chapter 8:2,4  תְּהִלִּים

To bless the new moon at the proper time is like greeting the Divine Presence. —Talmud, Sanhedrin 42a

 Sages of the Talmud write that the renewal of the moon each month reminds us of the magnificent wonders of G‑d’s creation, as if the Divine Presence in our world, so often hidden, is coming out to greet us.1  -  Rabbi Isaac Alfasi's code, Berachot, end of ch. 4.

This year's 2016 summer solstice brings a special rare event, 
as it coincides with the full strawberry moon for the first time in nearly 70 years, 
once in a generation and here it is!!
The moon and the sun both look more red/orange when they're by the horizon. 
The reason for this is because we're seeing them through the maximum thickness of atmosphere, which absorbs blue light and transmits red light.

Chased this moon up and down Santa Susana Mountain looking for a view, but was obstructed being within mountain, and finally coming down and after standing and shooting on a freeway entrance alone in the unobstructed dark, cars passing, and at No Parking signs on adjacent streets, YUP, went back home and shot this one from my garden of Joy. When will I learn it's where 'home is'?
Only shot 4 dozen photos tonight, and this was last. Last night, pre-Perigee, shot 80 photos.
