  • Wait a minute, I’ve gotta pay 45$ just to look at the moon? Do all of the proceeds go to the moon? ಠ_ಠ

  • dear textile museum,

    please do not call yourself “the tm”.
    you’re all growns up now, use your full name.

  • I think this may also be the full moon that rises in perfect position behind the monuments when viewed from Iwo Jima – specifically the Netherlands Carrilon area? (Every classic calendar photo you see with a full moon behind the Washington monument & Lincoln Memorial.)

    I remember running through there one fall evening and there were at least 100 photographers.

  • I think this event sounds like fun, but the full moon in not until Tuesday, Oct. 11.
