As a surprise event Rev A Slade took a few of the faithful to the Salceuu!d (the pinnacles) to witness the full moon and the sun in the sky at the same time. This is a very rare sight and can only be seen from a great height. The Salceuu!d is 759 meters above sea level and takes 4 hours to walk to.
The Reverend took this panoramic photo (unfortunately only 2D) which pans from south to west to north and east. Click on the picture to enlarge. Because of the scope of the photo the moon seems small. It is under the large cloud to the left of the nearby rock which actually the top of the Salceuu!p.
They stayed in a hut nearby and at dawn the faithful ascended again hoping to see the opposite – the moon setting as the sun rose. Unfortunately it was too cloudy to see anything.
We celebrate the O Moon (Full Moon) with drums with round skins. We bring our attention to circular movement with fire poi and fire staff. We are aware of cycles, seasons, spirals and rhythms. Time and space.
Note: The full moon image is digitally enhanced for these images
For the month of August all the Moon Days are on Wednesdays. Today is the first with a Noon No Moon lunch. Next week is the G Moon (First Quarter) dinner. Then there is a the O Moon (Full Moon) Drumming peaking at midnight. Finally is the D Moon (Last Quarter) breakfast. These meetings and meals take place when the moon is at the zenith, right above us.
Here’s a cartoon the Reverend couldn’t resist introducing to the fourth dimension this morning.
1. Use red/blue 3D glasses. View one eye at a time to see two different pictures.
2. If ‘b4’ is green or blue you need to look through the blue lens to see the Before picture. ‘afte’ will then be red so you look through the red lens to see the After picture.
Ideally 4D pictures will have some 3D effect when viewed with both eyes. Unfortunately this one doesn’t.
As with most images floating around the web it’s hard to find who is the artist. If you can help leave a comment so we can give credit where credit is due.
Here’s another version. This time ‘b4’ is red. Let us know which you prefer.
