Contest Entry #34 - The Full Moon Setting behind the Blue Mountains

March 19th, 2011: the full moon is as close to Earth as it gets, the full moon appearing 14% bigger than usual.

It had been the clearest of clear nights, and the full moon, was so bright you could not look directly at it, around midnight, being almost directly overhead, you cast no shadow from it.

It was just so beautiful, so serene and quiet, floating, and slowly drifting across the sky: mesmerizing in its brilliance.

All day I had been reading the predictions of all the doom-and-gloom merchants; predicting everything from a major earthquake, to the end of the world: for once there was some truth in their message of doom; the "mute" button on the TV remote, failed; and I had to LISTEN to all the TV adverts!!!

If that is not very close to a disaster, of "Biblical" proportions, then I don't what would be!
