What is tattoo Tuesday about?

June 11, 2013


I never get tired of looking at the moon and I found this “fun fact” on my iPad Moon app today:

How long would it take to get there?

Car ( @ 60 mph) – 5 months, 22 days, 15 hours, 56 minutes, 48 seconds

Plane (@ 600 mph) – 17 days, 11 hours, 23 minutes, 41 seconds

Sound (@ 761 mps) – 13 days, 18 hours, 39 minutes, 8 seconds

Saturn V (@ 17,432 mph) – 14 hours, 26 minutes, 20 seconds

Light (@ 186,282 mps) – 1.351 seconds

This is because the moon is at (or nearly at apogee) which makes it 251,673 miles away, or 1,350,546 Eiffel Towers away from Earth.  The moon’s phase is a waxing crescent.

Here are some moon tattoos.

  1. I like the stamp version but the moon will change over time. It does that.

    • Yes, moons do that.
