The Full Moon and the Dancer

Explanation: On Monday, January’s Full Moon rose as the Sun set. Spotted near the eastern horizon, its warm hues are seen in this photo taken near Cagliari, capital city of the Italian island of Sardinia. Of course the familiar patterns of light and dark across the Moon’s nearside are created by bright rugged highlands and dark smooth lunar maria. Traditionally the patterns are seen as pareidolia, giving the visual illusion of a human face like the Man in the Moon, or familiar animal like the Moon rabbit. But for a moment the swarming murmuration, also known as a flock of starlings, frozen in the snapshot’s field of view lends another pareidolic element to the scene. Some see the graceful figure of a dancer enchanted by moonlight.

Tomorrow’s picture: moons, rings, and shadows


满月与舞动的掠鸟群

说明: 在星期一那天,1月的满月在日落时东升。在这幅摄于意大利萨丁尼亚岛的首府卡尼亚里市近郊的影像里,暖色的月轮悬在东方的地平线上方。我们颇为熟悉的月球正面之亮暗纹路,则是来自明亮崎岖的高原和黝黑平滑的月海。在空想性错视的作用下,这些纹路造就了月表人脸或月兔等幻觉。而在拍下这幅影像的瞬间,视野里还有其他的空想性错视元素─聚团群舞(或称掠鸟群)。有人认为这种优雅的鸟群之舞,形似被月光迷惑的舞者。
