Full Moon over Long Beach

Monday, March 1, 2021

When the moon isn’t full, I sometimes walk outside at night in winter months and look for Orion. When I lived in Ocean Park forty years ago, the ambient light in Los Angeles was maybe only half of what it is now. Orion was so easy to see. Now I’m lucky if I can spot even a single star in that constellation.

However, the full moon still has a way of letting one release that nostalgia and live in the present tense of its glow. Alexis Rhone Fancher sent me a photograph last week of the full moon over Long Beach, as seen from the balcony of the apartment in San Pedro she shares with Jim Fancher. With her permission, I post this photograph.
