“Lunatics” At the May 5th, 2012, event, a small group of “Lunatics” took time out from the long running STMR event at Elna Tymes to go out and view the 17% larger moon as it rose through the trees at the end of Adele Ave in Mountain View. That, and these photos, are all we have from the participants. Now your reporter takes some liberties. So the moon photo is not quite up to the standards of NASA astrophotography. However, the photo of the “lunatics” taken by their alien abductors is quite memorable. I guess they’re not quite facile with our imaging technology. See this NASA video for more info on the super moon, and some very impressive photos.
