Supermoon Consolation

On May 6, Supermoon 2012 had sky watchers and photographers anxiously waiting to see the largest full moon of the year
 as the moon orbited the earth at it's closest point.

Unfortunately it was cloudy in Midland.
And while the night sky was certainly brighter Saturday evening, we did not experience the spectacular show
that many were privileged to see.

But, I did receive a consolation prize.

I was able to attend the Midwest Postcard Show
in Michigan on Sunday and discovered another
romantic man-in-the-moon postcard.
This newly-acquired card is part of the series 
shared with you during the Valentine holiday.

I shared the following photograph 
as part of my post titled Spooning Under the Moon.

I don't know how many postcards 
were originally published as part of this series,
but now I have located six variations of couples
 sharing a romantic gesture under the silvery moon.

Since Mother Nature didn't co-operate
with weather conditions favorable to viewing the Supermoon,
I will be satisfied with this vintage paper moon.

Until next time, live and love well.

I did get to view that supermoon and it was gorgeous! I think that your postcard collection is just as gorgeous. I have never seen any of this moon collection. I think they are so cute. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup!
