Moonrise, Moonset was inspired by the east Texas moon. This is a painting depicting a full moon rising or setting with a star-filled sky in the background. Ever since man first looked up at the stars, he has been fascinated by the giant sphere that hangs in the night sky above us, and this particular artist is no exception. My favorite time to take a walk is in the late evening before turning in for the night. I love looking up into the night sky and seeing the stars and the moon on a cloudless or almost cloudless night. I especially love the times when the moon shines so brightly it lights up the night to so it looks almost like day! Just one of the many “bennies” of country living.
The Far Side of the Moon
FYI…Did you know the common belief the moon has a dark side is a myth? The truth is both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight. The Moon rotates around on its axis about once every 27 days. This is approximately the same amount of time it takes to orbit the Earth, which means the same side is always facing the Earth. Astronomers call this phenomenon “synchronous rotation.” Only about 59% of the moon is ever visible to Earth throughout an entire orbit. The rest of the 41% — the part we call “dark” — is the part we never get to see from Earth. The “far side” of the Moon has only been seen by the human eye from a spacecraft.
Moonrise: The time when the upper outermost edge of the moon rises above the horizon.
Moonset: The time when the moon’s upper outermost edge sets below the horizon.
