Our Closest Friend
August 9, 2016
Hi there! My name is Matteo. I am a physics major currently doing undergrad, planning on going to grad school for astronomy and then astrophysics. This picture I took of the full moon was on Wednesday, July 20th, 2016 at 12:35am when the moon was about 238,511 miles away. It was 99.8% illuminated and its altitude was 31 degrees. I took this with my Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ. We haven't been to the moon for almost forty-four years! Let's go back, and thank it for everything it does for us!
