full moon

tonight's moon is shining like a huge peppermint in the sky. in 1902 a frenchman by the name of georges melies made a movie called 'a trip to the moon' (le voyage dans la lune). his special effects had people referring to him as the 'cinemagician.' what a super title! here is his famous image of a spaceship hitting the moon smack in the eye.
