Footsteps on the Moon

KLS Droid Incredible screen capture 12-23-2013Space has been in the news recently with China’s soft landing of the Jade Rabbit on the moon’s surface, the first human touch since 1976. That’s what caused this photo to catch my eye.

Serendipity

KLS Droid Incredible screen capture 12-23-2013Back when I was organizing Full Moon bike rides around Lake Okeechobee, I wanted to know if the coming full moon was going to rise at an appropriate time for the ride, so I installed a moon phase application that would give me the info I needed.

An added bonus was that it came with a desktop image that showed a representation of what the orb was doing at that particular time. I was flipping through the screens on my HTC Droid Incredible and noticed that the Footprint ap that takes a photo and embeds address and GPS coordinates in it was sitting right on top of the moon.

It’s funny that I had been using those applications for several years now without ever noticing that.

Going into slow week

Everybody is going to be super busy with family activities for the next week. I’m going to keep posting, but I won’t be doing any really heavy stories (as this one indicates) for a few days.

I WILL have a special announcement about an Amazon Prime special promotion that starts December 26 that will save you a bundle of money on shipping costs. Stay tuned.

  1. Unless the Chinese put a man on the moon there has been several moon shots since 1976. The latest one I remember was a probe to test for water by NASA a couple of years ago.
    I will have to look at that HTC droid app…looks pretty cool…and the full moon raises at same time every month , more or less , almost at sunset, but the earth time does change a little.
