That Mar 29 one looks like a cantaloupe 😁
Cantaloupe that's funny.

But the one thing I've found odd (after I learned to use the camera) and you can go back and look for yourself. All the pictures are of the same face of the moon irregardless of the date/time I took them. I never noticed that before until I started taking pictures of the moon and studying them. I find this very strange. Can anyone explain why? I would really like to know.

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸

The moon is not evenly weighted - the heavy side of the moon always faces the earth due to gravity.
I finally got time to research this question.

According to NASA, our earth is moving through the Galaxy at 62,000 mph (that's 4 times the speed of a bullet). And at the same time rotating, spinning on it's Axis at over 1,000 mph. The Moon is approximately a quarter of a million miles away (240.000 miles) and orbiting the Earth at a speed of 2,288 mph (3 times faster than a bullet).

And yet every picture I've taken of the moon, at different evenings and times always shows the same face of the moon? Wow, just wow 😲... How is a simplton guy like me supposed to wrap his head around something like that? It's no wonder I can never trow a ball into those silly cylinders at the country fair 😂

I thought you would enjoy this picture of the sunset, I took yesterday from my front porch. The sun was dim (obscured) yesterday evening. For the first time in my life. I actually looked at it and snapped this cell phone picture. In the past I waited until it was low enough in the horizon to get a good picture, because it was so bright and blinded me.

Playing around with my cheap cell phone telescope. I focused in on a random star in the sky, what planet is this?
