Moonalice poster by Dave Hunter
According to Moonalice legend, tonight poster by Dave Hunter illustrates the remarkable celestial events that occurred over the past 48 hours. The Nationals’ Bryce Harper launched two small satellites – actually they were baseballs thrown by the Giants’ Hunter Strickland – into high earth orbit, creating serious competition to Space-X and NASA in the satellite launch business. Somehow the Giants overcame this rocketry to win the series. Then this morning, just before dawn, there was a total eclipse of the moon. Lunar eclipses occur when the sun and moon are on opposite sides of Earth, exactly 180 degrees apart. This situation – known as syzygy – was made more dramatic when the two home runs hit the moon simultaneously, creating the effect you see here in Dave’s poster. It must have been something to see, but of course we all slept through it. That’s why we have the Moonalice legend … to make sense of everything!
