 Supermoon beckons
Bringing awe to the senses
Look look lest it fade

23 Jun, 2013 was the day of the supermoon when the moon was closest to earth. Here is the moon in all its glory…. full, closer and larger than life.  Taken from my balcony.

Did you know that there was a competition started in 2007 called the Google Lunar X Prize (GLXP) also called 2.0 by the X Prize Foundation? The challenge calls for privately-funded spaceflight teams to compete to successfully launch a robotic spacecraft that can land and travel across the surface of the Moon while sending back to Earth specified images and other data. The prize is $ 30 M to the first privately funded team that lands a robot on the moon which  successfully  transmits high definition images.  For information head to the wikipedia page
