How High The Moon

At least for now, the buildings remain where they were first built, a hundred years or so ago. And the view from my window, at least for now, has also remain the same for a hundred years or so.

It is the sky that changes.

Ah but the viewer changes and no one sees things quite the same way do they?
What always captures my interest about the sky is that what we are seeing is how things looked a million or more light years ago...we will never know what it REALLY looks like right this minute.

CO -

mybabyjohn is so right - a flash in the sky that may mark a supernova took place millions of years ago.

That moon was amazing though . . .

I've always been fascinated by the layers in a city, how buildings remain, change function, are abandoned and reclaimed again. Perhaps nowhere outside of cities at war has this happened like in NY.
