    Dear Steve B., Thank you for your photograph.  I selected your photograph as an inspiration for my film, "Ticket to Heaven," as the reflection of the Moon in the puddle reminds me of all the other celestial objects floating in space with the Moon's light reflecting off the cement appearing as asteroids orbiting an unknown universe.

    you probably slept through it, but in the pre-dawn hours of September 13 (5:30am est) i walked out onto my front stoop, and saw the moon rising in the east. it hung suspended in a visible 3-d space like a great sphere that had an amazingly bright light shining on it, a light just ready to shine on this part of the earth, yet the visible light on the moon was but a sliver of crescen t on its bottom left (north). directly above the moon shone venus in all her glory. directly to her south was serius, the brightest star that can be seen from planet earth, and to its south, in syzygy with venus and serius, were the three wise men of orion's belt. as always, 45 degrees south and up from orion is the red giant betelgeuse, paired that morning with a very bright jupiter, aligned perfectly with mars in the west. (i'm not making this up! check the farmer's almanac or nasa) the sight was spectacular! we are witness to this vision from our planet only once in about 2150 years (figuring in the earth's precession at the winter solstice) - an "age". This is the dawning of the age of aquarius. now how cool is that?  ps: i read einstein and hawking, not my horoscope.  congratulations!
