I Brought You the Moon
Image Credit & Copyright: Fernando Cabrerizo


I love you so much that I brought you the Moon.
Please take it before this tree becomes more interested.

Also, the Moon is heavier than I thought.
And I foolishly picked it up by the hot side by mistake.
But it is for you and, well, the others reading this APOD.
Promise to keep this image -- our image -- in a safe place, and know
that it was taken in a single, well-planned exposure in Valladolid, Spain.
Please take it and keep it always as a token of our love and, well, April Fool's Day.
