Always a sweet surprise to look up and see the moon in plain daylight.
Going for a spin. The Lunar Module, rests in the background as either David Scott, the first to drive on the moon or Jim Irwin, the second, approaches the Lunar Rover, July 1971. Al Worden served as Command Module Pilot on the flight. The 12-day, 7 hour mission brought back the ‘Genesis Rock’ to the Lunar Sample Laboratory in Houston. The specimen, at least 4 billion years old, was formed in the early stages of the Solar System. A15 was the first ‘J Mission’ or 3-day lunar stay upon the moon.
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
The sun is Generous
When she kisses your lips.
Your whole jaw loosens, melts, it
Is dripping, like butter,
into the sand.
Her sister’s ocean currents
Laugh and lap it up, warm streak
Laps it up,
Tide by tide.
The car’s not in the driveway! The Lunar Module seemingly has the moon to itself as astronauts John Young & Charlie Duke take out the Lunar Rover for a spin, Apr 1972. Backup for the mission were Fred Haise, Edgar Mitchell & Stuart Roosa. Original backup for the mission were Haise as Commander, William Pogue as Command Module Pilot & and Gerald Carr flying the Lunar Module. The trio were scheduled to fly Apollo 19. However, when Apollo 18 & 19 were canceled by NASA in Sept 1970, past Apollo astronauts were assigned A16 backup while Pogue & Carr went on to serve on the 1973 Skylab 4 mission.

The two remaining gay teenagers of the Portal fandom have created various humanizations of the moon and ship them with Chell
Hot take the moon, constantly going through change, is not a woman, they are genderfliud. When the moon is full and round, she is a woman, when the moon is thin and sharp, he is a man, but usually, they are somewhere in between.
