"At any one instant there is always a sunrise somewhere on Earth, a sunset somewhere on Earth, noontime somewhere on Earth and a midnight somewhere on Earth. Also, at the instant of full moon, there is always a sunrise somewhere on Earth, a sunset somewhere on Earth, noontime somewhere on Earth and a midnight somewhere on Earth." ~ Bruce McClure
"...the full moon occurs at the same instant worldwide, despite the differences in what the clock has to say at various time zones. The moon is full when it’s most directly opposite the sun for the month." ~Bruce McClure
Sunrise, sunset, somewhere on earth,
The heat of noon, the cool of night.
A rooster crows, a baby cries,
While mom and dad put out the light.
It's always sunrise on this earth
It's always sunset, too.
But full moon happens instantly
The same for me and you.
Jupiter's a pinhole bright
Breaking into eternal light.
Aldebaran isn't near
Nor near as small as it appears.
I ponder as I catch my breath
Black velvet pierced by planet's place;
And softer, next is reddish hue
of bigger sun than warms my face.
Each one is born and each one dies
just like the sunset and sunrise.
But when we pass though that dark day
The FULLEST MOON will light our way.
