Moonrise over Hadassah

.
The moon rises over Hadassah Medical Center.
.
From our moshav across the valley we see the campus expanding year by year.
It is becoming like a little city on its own hill.
.
The tall hospital tower is not yet finished but it already dwarfs the once-high helipad on the left.
You too can watch it being built on Hadassah's live webcam.
But no work going on today.
Today is a holiday. Happy Sukkot!
I wonder if the webcam will pick up the big moon this evening . . . .

This post is for SkyWatch Friday.

Skywatch Friday? That's an early post!

Full moon here also of course. Lovely to think that we can all see it from where we are...

Reader Wil said...

The moon is always a source of inspiration! It inspired songwriters but also authors like Jules Verne, written at a time that a journey to the moon was unthinkable.

Nice moonrise photo, Dina~! Fun to catch up on your blog this afternoon - I really liked your Psalm challenge a few days ago!

BTW, I also used to always walk the 1.5 miles to school every day..

Great! It look like a Photoshopped moon, but I know this is not the case...

Dina said...

VP, nope. I don't even have Photoshop. Too lazy to do more than point and shoot and post.

Karen said...

A beacon overhead. A terrific shot!

Nice photos.

I did use the link to see the construction underway but it must be night there as it looked very dark and I guess the hospital had some lights on.

I always admire people who can get decent shots of the moon as you have--because I can't!

SKY-SEEKERS

The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full is just play!
