What's that in the sky?

I've avoided non-birding posts for a while, but time to make an exception.  Mainly because of this object in the sky.

Taken from Powell Towers this evening.  Next time you see it, give it a wink for Neil Armstrong!  The moon affects so much of the nature on our planet, whether it's the state of the tides or the navigation of bird migration. 

Personally, birding gives me a sense of adventure, especially when exploring other countries.  But that can be nothing like the Apollo 11 mission to the moon that Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins undertook in July 1969.  And it'll never be forgotten.
