“Superflower Moon”

“But at one moment, they all became aware of an immense presence hovering overhead. They looked up to perceive the moon, pewter-colored and apparently ready to settle down right next to them on the surface of the earth. Luna was bigger than they had ever seen her. She must have broken free of her orbit and sunk dangerously close to the planet around which she normally revolved. The great gray orb was obscenely intimate to the friends. Its proximity swallowed the mountains and trees, rendering them toyish. Like a titanic voyeur, it gazed at them from a window seemingly just feet from their faces. Though its overall color was bright gray, the moon’s features were light black splotches, rendered negligible by the brilliance of the dominant tone. They thought that the satellite would soon crash into the earth in a life-ending cataclysm; it was that close.”
