To the Moon and Back

A journal page for the Art Journal Journey challenge ......No faces, No leaves, No wings.
This page has a lot of layers and was inspired by the picture I pulled off the internet about November 14, when the moon will be closet to the earth.....or a Lunar Perigee.

Lunar Perigee and Apogee

The Moon's path around the Earth is elliptical, with one side of the orbit closer to Earth than the other. The side closest to the Earth is called the perigee and the side farthest from the Earth is known as the apogee.
The Moon's phase and the date of its approach to its perigee or apogee are not synced, though sometimes it is possible for a full Moon to occur close to the Moon's perigee. This is known as the Supermoon.
When this happens, the Moon may look larger than a normal full Moon or a micro Moon, a full Moon that occurs at the apogee. From Earth, a supermoon can look up to 12-14% larger and about 25-30% brighter than a micro moon.

 Ok, enough science, you can check out more on the website....I did check out when it will be in my time zone.......5:25 A.M.
Here are the step outs of how this page came to be.............
