Full Moon. Rises at sunset, high in the sky around midnight. Visible all night.

This marks the first time that accurate shadows at this level of detail are possible in such a computer simulation. The shadows are based on the global elevation map being developed from measurements by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). LOLA has already taken more than 10 times as many elevation measurements as all previous missions combined.

The Moon always keeps the same face to us, but not exactly the same face. Because of the tilt and shape of its orbit, we see the Moon from slightly different angles over the course of a month. When a month is compressed into 12 seconds, as it is in this animation, our changing view of the Moon makes it look like it’s wobbling. This wobble is called libration.

The word comes from the Latin for "balance scale" (as does the name of the zodiac constellation Libra) and refers to the way such a scale tips up and down on alternating sides. The sub-Earth point gives the amount of libration in longitude and latitude. The sub-Earth point is also the apparent center of the Moon’s disk and the location on the Moon where the Earth is directly overhead.

The Moon is subject to other motions as well. It appears to roll back and forth around the sub-Earth point. The roll angle is given by the position angle of the axis, which is the angle of the Moon’s north pole relative to celestial north. The Moon also approaches and recedes from us, appearing to grow and shrink. The two extremes, called perigee (near) and apogee (far), differ by more than 10%.

The most noticed monthly variation in the Moon’s appearance is the cycle of phases, caused by the changing angle of the Sun as the Moon orbits the Earth. The cycle begins with the waxing (growing) crescent Moon visible in the west just after sunset. By first quarter, the Moon is high in the sky at sunset and sets around midnight. The full Moon rises at sunset and is high in the sky at midnight. The third quarter Moon is often surprisingly conspicuous in the daylit western sky long after sunrise.

Celestial north is up in these images, corresponding to the view from the northern hemisphere. The descriptions of the print resolution stills also assume a northern hemisphere orientation. To adjust for southern hemisphere views, rotate the images 180 degrees, and substitute "north" for "south" in the descriptions.

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

The weather was great for the walk and the water made it perfect to get reflections.
Croatia’s first National park (Plitvice Lake) established in 1949 covers 296.85 km2 of breathtaking natural splendor. The park was inscribed on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1979, in recognition of its "outstanding natural beauty and undisturbed production of travertine (tufa) through chemical and biological action". The park represents a phenomenon of karst hydrography.

The park harbours a grand collection of waterfalls, gallery of lakes, forest and diversity of animal life. The lakes are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. The sixteen lakes which are formed by natural dams of travertine are separated into upper and lower lakes. About eight km of pathways and wooden walking trails around lakes are accessible to visitors. Trails are descending from an altitude of 636m to 503m above sea level.

Since only 3 countries do not use the metric system I will no longer convert any measurements to the imperial system.

Le Caravage s’éloigne totalement des règles de la peinture classique. Il est à l’opposé d’un Raphaël ou d’un Poussin. Le Caravage représente les courants artistiques, récurrents dans l’histoire de la peinture européenne, qui s’éloignent de la mesure et de la recherche des équilibres. Ces courants sont attirés par les excès, les déséquilibres, les surcharges, de toutes sortes. Cette attirance pour ce qui sort de la norme et de l’équilibre peut s’exprimer par les thèmes, par le dessin ou par la couleur. En peinture ces courants ont pris divers noms au fil des époques: maniérisme, baroque, rococo, expressionnisme, surréalisme…..Le Caravage est une évolution du maniérisme italien vers plus de réalisme. Il est particulièrement caractérisé par les tons sombres et contrastés de ses tableaux. Une manière de peindre que l’on a appelé "le ténébrisme" et qui aura une forte influence sur les peintres postérieurs.
L’interprétation par les artistes européens du caravagisme sera multiple et diverse.
Toutefois le caravagisme va prendre immédiatement deux orientations principales : Une première orientation très contrastée et très sombre, peu colorée, chez les italiens (Manfredi, Ribera, Luca Giordano…).
Une seconde orientations beaucoup plus colorée et moins contrastée, influencée par Venise, chez les caravagistes Français et ceux des Pays Bas.
Le tableau ci-dessus est cependant d’une facture très classique et n’est pas très représentatif du style du Caravage. Même si le clair-obscur est bien présent, il est plus accentué dans d’autres tableaux du peintre et chez les artistes de son école. D’autre part sur le plan théologique il est très respectueux de l’esthétique symbolique demandée par l’Église. Ce qui n’est pas le cas dans d’autres œuvres comme "la mort de la Vierge du Louvre".
Caravaggio a été tenté par la rébellion, et "l’art pour moi", mais à son époque ce n’était pas possible. L’artiste devait créer un art pour les autres. Un art compris par les peuples illettrés. Un art défini par l’église et l’aristocratie dans ce but : éduquer les peuples. La peinture c’était la télévision de ce temps là. notamment chaque dimanche à l’église.
Notre époque n’ est pas plus avancée, plus intelligente, plus progressiste ou plus rationnelle !!!! Non, elle obéit seulement à d’autres commandements idéologiques inventés par des Influents qui ne sont certainement pas meilleurs. Et ses techniques de communication avec les peuples sont différentes.

Caravaggio deviate completely from of the rules of classical painting. It is the opposite of Raphael and Nicolas Poussin. Caravaggio represents the artistic currents, recurring in the history of European painting, which move away from the measurement and the search for balance. These currents are attracted by the excesses, imbalances, overloads, of sorts. This attraction to that is out of the norm and the balance can be expressed by the subjects, by drawing or by color. In painting these currents have taken various names through the ages: Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo, Expressionism, Surrealism ….. Caravaggio is an evolution of the Italian Mannerism towards more realism. It is particularly characterized by dark and contrasting tones of his paintings. A style of painting that has been called "the tenebrism" and that will have a strong influence on later painters.
The interpretation by the European artists of Caravaggism will be multiple and diverse.
However Caravaggism will immediately take two major directions: A first orientation, highly contrasted and very dark, almost colorless, among Italians (Manfredi, Ribera, Luca Giordano …).
A second orientation much more colorful and less contrasted, influenced by Venice, among the French caravagists and those of the Netherlands.

The above table, however, is of a very classic style and is not very representative of Caravaggio’s style. Even if the chiaroscuro is present, it is more accentuated in other paintings of the painter and among the artists of his school. On the other hand, on the theological level, he is very respectful of the symbolic aesthetics demanded by the Church. This is not the case in other works such as "the death of the Virgin" of the Louvre.

Caravaggio was tempted by rebellion, and "art for me", but in his day it was not possible. The artist had to create an art for others. An art understood by the illiterate people. An art defined by the church and the aristocracy for this purpose: to educate the people. The painting was the television of that time. especially every Sunday at church.
Our time is not more advanced, smarter, more progressive or more rational !!!! No, it only obeys other ideological commands invented by Influents who are certainly not better.
And his communication techniques with the people are different.
