"A religion, old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the Universe as revealed by modern science might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths.
Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge." -Carl Sagan

For Lammas/Midsummer, here's a stunning shot of the Moon:
The photo was taken by amateur astronomer Bart Declercq, using a "...mosaic of 20 movies using a DMK31AF, C9.25, ATIK, 0.5x focal reducer and IR-pass filter...The moon was a mere 11° above the horizon at the time, just above the rooftops." Awesome!
