Yet another Super Moon!!! The Moon has come very close to the Earth after decades! The distance between the two is known by an interesting term- perigee. I walked to the Saigon river banks yesterday but was a bit late to see the rising moon. The moon was up and glowing like an oversized silver ball. Rather disappointed, I did moon around for a while, basking in the silver light and admiring the glowing Moon up above..
Slowly, silently, now the moon

SUPER MOON OF NOVEMBER!
Today I caught him red-faced. My one hour wait proved worthy! As they said in the social media it was unique and ‘undeniably beautiful’! What a splendid and stunning sight it was! The big reddish orange moon rose from behind a building, across the Saigon river. The river water was glowing richly and as the moon ascended the sky the colour slowly turned pale yellow. I stood there awestruck.
The moon, like a flower,
in heaven’s high bower,
with silent delight sits and
smiles on the night.
As usual I was over the moon because a full moon is out and kept on clicking photographs.
