Starring the Moon

 I associate summertime with the night sky and — especially — the moon. Is this true for anyone else?   I suppose it has to do with the fact that one is more likely to head out for star and moon gazing on a warm night, rather than on a cold winter one.This list is about looking at the moon through an imaginative lens.
