MOON AND SATURN Taken by Marco Meniero on May 9, 2017 @ Pisam Tuscany, Italy
I photographed the paths of the Full Moon and Saturn in the sky of Pisa above Arno River, Tuscany, Italy. This is the farthest and smallest full moon of the year with Saturn shining bright near it. This is the full moon of June (June, 9, 2017), before of the Summer Solstice. It is called the “Full Strawberry Moon” becouse June was the month of harvesting strawberries and the ripening of berries. Different names of the Full Moon were established by the Indians of America based on the characteristics of each months Nature. The tribes kept track of the seasons by choosing a different name for each recurring full moon.The most famous denominations are those assigned to the ancient tribe of Algonquin, the population living in the New England area west of Lake Superior, then adopted by European colors. The blue building on the other side of the Arno is Palazzo Blu. Palazzo Blu is a center for temporary exhibitions and cultural activities located in 9 Lungarno Gambacorti, in the heart of the historic center of Pisa, Italy. This museum is managed by the Fondazione Palazzo Blu (a foundation funded by Fondazione Pisa), and is located in the Palazzo Giuli Rosselmini Gualandi (and Palazzo Casarosa), ancient palace restored by the Fondazione Pisa. Its name comes from the blue color uncovered during an architectural recent restoration, and attributable to the taste of Russian owners who acquired the Palazzo in the eighteenth century.

The panorama was taken using a series of 8 vertical shots with the zoom set to 15mm; Lunar disks were taken with the zoom set to 30mm.
I took picture of paths from the other picture to create a similar image to the other about Piazza dei Miracoli. The Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), formally known as Piazza del Duomo ( Cathedral Square), is an area located in Pisa, Tuscany, Italy, recognized as an important center of European medieval art and one of the finest architectural complexes in the world. Considered sacred by the Catholic Church, its owner, the square is dominated by four great religious edifices: the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistry, the Campanile, and the Camposanto Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery). Partly paved and partly grassed, the Piazza dei Miracoli is also the site of the Ospedale Nuovo di Santo Spirito (New Hospital of the Holy Spirit), which houses the Sinopias Museum (Italian: Museo delle Sinopie) and the Cathedral Museum (Italian: Museo dellOpera del Duomo). The name Piazza dei Miracoli was coined by the Italian writer and poet Gabriele dAnnunzio who, in his novel Forse che sì forse che no (1910), described the square as the prato dei Miracoli, or meadow of miracles. The square is sometimes called the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles). In 1987, the whole square was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
