I Bet You Haven’t Seen Such Moon Rise In Your Life

You must have seen many sunrises, but you have perhaps never seen the moon rise in your life?
In New South Wales, Australia, the state most northern end of the Byron Bay Lighthouse, is the most eastern end of Australian mainland, where you can really see the magnificent view of moon rising.


A 5,000-year-old rock carving at Knowth, Ireland, may represent the Moon, which would be the earliest depiction discovered. The contrast between the brighter highlands and the darker maria creates the patterns seen by different cultures as the Man in the Moon, the rabbit and the buffalo, among others. In many prehistoric and ancient cultures, the Moon was personified as a deity or other supernatural phenomenon, and astrological views of the Moon continue to be propagated today.
