Day 231

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF Zoom 70-300; 300 mm, ISO 800; f/14 ; 1/25 s.

This is today’s shot, yes, I shot it today after turning the computer off and before going to sleep.

I went to the balcony to close the window and then I saw the moon, it was big and beautiful, I stayed there for a while staring at it, and afterwards I kind of realize that I should grab de camera and snap some photos. I did, but as I was to tired I didn’t really bother myself to turn the computer on again and post, I needed to rest after these long 2 weeks.

Here you go with some facts about the moon:

The Moon is about  384.400 kilometres (250.000 miles) from Earth, that means it would take us 130 days travelling by car, 13 hours by rocket and 1,52 seconds by light speed.

The Moon causes most of the tides.

The surface of the moon has many things on it such as craters, lava plains, mountains, and valleys. Scientists believe the craters were formed around 3.5 to 4.5 billion years ago by meteors hitting the moon’s surface.

The Moon’s diameter is 3476 km (2160 miles)

The Moon’s gravity is 1/6 that of Earth, therefore if you weighed 100 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 16.6 pounds on the moon.

Only 12 people have ever stepped onto the surface of the Moon.

The Moon is not a light source, it does not make its own light, it reflects light from the sun.

The Moon is the 5th largest natural satellite in the Solar System.

That’s all for today, have a nice day!

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

Hola!

Esta foto la tomé hoy antes de irme a dormir, cuando apagué el computador cerca de las 2 am fui al balcón a cerrar las ventanas y vi la luna, estaba muy grande y brillante, así que fui a buscar la cámara para tomarle algunas fotos, nunca me habían gustado las fotos que le tomaba, pero en particular esta me gustó. Como estaba tan cansado, en vez de prender otra vez el computador y subirla decidí irme a dormir.

Algunos datos sobre al luna:

La luna está aproximadamente a  384.400 kilometros (250.000 millas) de la tierra, eso significa que ir alla nos tomaría 130 dias en carro. 13 horas en cohete y 1,52 segundos a la velocidad de la luz.

La superficie de la luna tiene muchos cráteres, montañas y valles; los científicos creen que los cráteres se formaron alrededor de 3.5 – 4.5 billones de años debido a choques de meteoritos en la luna.

El diámetro de la luna es de 3476 km (2160 millas)

La luna es la causante de la mayoría de subidas de marea, aunque no de todas.

La gravedad en la luna es  1/6 de la gravedad en la tierra, quien pesa 100 libras aca, en la luna pesaría 16,6.

La luna no es una fuente de luz, simplemente refleja la luz del sol.

Sólo 12 personas han pisado alguna vez la suprficie de la luna.

La luna es el quinto satélite natural más largo del Sistema Solar.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.

Saludos!

Pablo.

  1. I have yet to achieve a good moon shot! They’re always over exposed. Just a round flare. This is beautiful. Not overdone like some telephoto shots are. Nice job.

    1. Unfortunatelly not; the semester is gonna be over in the 28th of july, still a long way to go, but I wont complain, I’ll try my best to get good grades and keep a good average 🙂

  2. Te quedo muy buena la señora luna, desde tu vwentana se ven miles de maravillas, de noche y de dia, al atardecer y al anochecer!!!
