Easter moon with the Bigma.
Lens: Bigma Camera: k5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma. ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F6.3

Ever wonder why Easter is at different times year after year? It's all about the moon. Easter always follows on the first Sunday after the first full moon when Spring officially arrives in March on the equinox.The first full moon is this coming Saturday( April 4th) and that means Easter is the next day.I should be enjoying this upcoming full moon at poolside in Florida with a red solo cup or two.--charliezap

Nice image.

I was born on Easter. When I got old enough to care I wanted to know when my next birthday would fall on Easter. I was a little discouraged to find out it wasn't going to happen very soon. It will finally happen on my 79th birthday just 8 years from now.

Turns out April 9th is not too common a day for Easter to fall on.
