    A beautiful modernist piece to accompany space age footage. I love Clade Debussy music, which at this point seems timeless.

    I had a friend who swore you needed moonlight just like you need sunlight.

    @rabbit tobacco. I think your friend is right. And I think “moon” education is sadly neglected. Phases of the moon, and seasons of the moon, and tides. Reading the sky, as the moon makes its yearly journey.

    I was expecting a symphonic rendition! But this was lovely, nevertheless. Here is my favorite version of the piece, with my favorite symphony and favorite conductor.
