Photo: Fly Me Past the Moon

One thing I've noticed over the past little while is that it's easy to think of the moon landings as vaguely fantastic - not hoaxes, because the hoaxist mindset is one I cannot unravel - mostly because it was all said and done a decade before I was even born. It's easy to think of the moon as being not quite real, just a big light in the sky; funny for a dude whose first published story was set there.

But every once in a while, it smashes its way back into my awareness, like it did through this photo I took from the New Westminster waterfront on Saturday afternoon, with an airport-bound Air Canada jetliner passing below the first quarter moon. Mare Tranquillitatis and Mare Crisium stand out strongly against the blue.
