When the Moon Hits the Sky….

To continue on one of the worst songs ever written, When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie, that’s amoray….

This link leads to a photo of the earth during a total eclipse.  Note that the moon does not shadow the entire earth, only a certain small area but the shadow travels at about 2000kph  across its path which gives view of the total eclipse to many areas.

That’s Amore, a big hit by Dean Martin, early sixties, I think.

The satellite that took the pic was obviously quite close to the earth but the moon shadow seems so small.  Stupid question, why?  So Far Away, Carol King?
