For Those Who Cannot See the Super Moon

by Megan S.

Super Moon
This evening, riding home as the rain and wind battered the car, I quipped that I felt like the little girl who was locked in a closet on Venus because I wouldn't be able to see tonight's Super Moon through the storm.  The reference is to a simple short story for children written by Ray Bradbury called All Summer in a Day; a tale that had such a profound effect on me, I haven't forgotten it decades later.  Neither have many other people, as I instantly got tweets from friends jokingly saying how traumatized they were by the story.

So, for those of you who also can't see the moon tonight, spend a few minutes reading Bradburry's story and be happy that, while it may not be as big as it is tonight, you can still see the full moon once a month.
