Last night I left the office at around 5.40pm. I don’t usually get on the ferry, but I was heading to Milson’s Point and it was quicker than a train. I looked into the sky and lurking behind a perfectly positioned set of clouds was the most perfectly orange moon I have ever seen. I came pretty damn close to pulling my holy blade out of my satchel and wrecking shit at Luna Park.
Which would have been disastrous of course. Lucky I don’t actually carry any sharp weapons in my satchel. Lucky this was just a hypothetical situation that would never ever happen ever in real life.
Anyway, I tried taking some photographs with my phone, but my phone camera is truly dreadful, so the impact was lost. I know it’s an optical illusion, but it looked so huge, hanging just above the opera house. It felt vividly like that moment in Bloodborne when moon suddenly looms larger and closer and the scale is just like whoa.
It was insane.
Thankfully a number of other super talented photographers with good equipment took some pics of the moon and posted them to Twitter!
