Final Full Moon of 2013

As I was working this evening, I stepped outside to gaze upon what distinctly is the Final Full Moon of 2013. As I pierced my view upward into the clouded skies, there was the moon peeking through the clouds. It wasn’t a large full moon that we typically see due to its distance to earth at this time. It was small in comparison but it was still the same moon that hoovers in the universe that we see from time to time. It was so mystic in its essence. Even though it was small it still had “character”.

I captured a few short stills with my phone camera…..ALLOW ME TO SHARE

Let me also share some other facts about this moon from Universe Today by David Dickinson

1.  The Most Distant and Visually Fullest Small Moon of 2013

2.  Tonight’s Full Moon rides high for northern hemisphere residents towards local midnight. But the “Long Night’s Moon” of 2013 is rather lackluster in terms of declination. While it’s the northernmost Full Moon of 2013 at a declination of +18.7 degrees, it’s a far cry from the maximum declination of +28.72 degrees (the angle of the ecliptic plus the tilt of the Moon’s orbit) that it can achieve. This only occurs every 18.6 years and last occurred in 2006 and will happen again around 2025. We’re currently headed towards a shallow minimum for the Moon’s orbit in 2015. Ancient European and Native American cultures both knew of this cycle of high-flying moons.

3. The passing of the Full Moon also means it will be entering into the morning sky.

4. China’s Chang’E-3 spacecraft landed on the Moon just outside of the Bay of Rainbows (Sinus Iridum) near Montes Recti in the northern section of the Mare Imbrium on Saturday, December 14th. The landing site is visible now on the lunar nearside. Look for the Sinus Iridum as a wide crescent scarp, a sort of “notch” in the top of Mare Imbrium.

So when is the next full moon?  It is hard to precisely predict.

It takes the moon about 27.3 days to travel it’s complete orbit around the earth and it’s moon phase cycle is 29.53 days. With the months being 28 to 31 days long it makes the Full Moon and New Moon fall on a different day of the month every year and rather difficult to keep track of.

Thank you for allowing me to share the Final Full Moon of 2013

I am an Indiana based Christian, Husband, Father, and prior Us Air Force Veteran. I originally began my marketing career in the 1990′s as I embraced a joint opportunity with my parents in support of their marketing efforts with a major corporation. I secured a distributorship and worked it sparingly. My activities were more focused on the indirect mentoring I was receiving through them from some of the big leaders in the business. Being connected to my parents success positioned me to meet great people of leadership. It was exciting for me to see the lifestyles they lived as they traveled all over the world sharing their success and implanting dreams, visions, and possibilities in the lives of others. I too saw the chance to diverse and secure my family’s future. I later independently changed direction trying my skills at offering various products and services with some success. What I discovered was that there are others just like me that were looking for a “niche” to attract others of interest to add value in their lives. In 2010, I came to the realization that people weren’t just looking for “stuff” and those that had “stuff” were looking for “solutions”. People are seeking the most effective means of presenting an offering. People want to know “how” to market. People want to become successful in their efforts.(whatever success means to them) The balance in that equation is not just self gratification, It becomes of value when you can help others. I realized that it is of my God given gift to be of purpose to others. I realized that there are Great People in the world whom are doing Great Things. I have had the privilege to meet several of them. It delights my spirit to be remembered and valued as one of those people. So there came about a paradigm shift within me….. I have channeled into areas of marketing that I feel are good resources to help empower people. Along with those resources I offer my consulting and advisement as a result of the training and knowledge that I have received over my tenure in marketing and promoting. I engage with Business to Business groups I support local companies and organizations I support non for profit groups I support help organizations I collaborate with individuals and companies assisting with promotions, advertising, and branding I recognize people,companies, and groups whom are making a difference in the world right now. Simply Put….I Care…..I am Concerned… I am Sincere….I will take Action Three things: 1. Building Relationships Embracing the opportunity to take the time to get to know who people are and what they have to offer. 2. Creating Alliances To not be bias or prejudice against other offerings if they have merit, good intent, and integrity. 3. Referral Marketing To jointly assist others in promoting good products and services that could be a benefit to someone 4.Living Life to Make a Difference in the world To leave a lasting impression on someone that life for them became better as a result of knowing me. The world is a very big place. There is room enough for us all to exist. We should help, support, and encourage to success. We should build up and not tear down. There is GREATNESS in us all….Let’s Embrace it! At the end of the day there are only (3) things that run through the minds of people when they meet you Who You Are…. What Do You Have… And, Why They Should Want It….. Be of Value To Others Much Success
