Moon Pushing... buoyancy, buoyant, or in the case of the moon, being an object, not an adjective and an artwork, Buoyance!Did you know that if you could push the moon just enough to move it and let go it would bounce back into orbit. It would be similar to when you push on a car with bad shocks and it springs back and forth until it comes to rest. Also like when pushing a basket ball under water, it resists, then let go and it floats back up. But don’t push too hard because you can push it out of orbit but it isnt’ easy. Even an asteroid slamming into it at twenty thousand miles per hour wouldn’t do it.
Go ahead, push on the moon. I do it all the time. It won’t hurt.

A more thorough answer to “Why does the Moon stay suspended in the air?” is the following. We think that Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity explains the properties of space and time in the Universe. Within that theory, objects with mass curve spacetime in their vicinity, and this curvature influences the motions of other objects. The greater the mass and density of the object, the larger the curvature of spacetime that results. So, the Moon orbits the Earth because the Earth curves spacetime in the vicinity of the Moon. Though the Moon itself curves space as well (since it has mass), the curvature in the vicinity of the Moon is dominated by the Earth, which “tells” the Moon to orbit the Earth, given the Moon’s current position and motion in the sky. It is this interplay between mass and curvature that causes the gravitational and the centripetal forces in the first place, and thus why the simple explanation holds.
This work is from a photo of the moon I took October 16, 2016 at 8pm. This is available as a framed, canvas, or fine art print at Society6- Buoyance by Rybird
or I can have it printed how you like. This is fine art up to 20 by 30 inches, and other products such as a fleece blanket or shower curtain scale well, "means looks great large on decorative furnishings"

Gaea Lake and the Jay
Blue Jay: Proper Use of Power If you have a Blue Jay totem, you must learn to use your personal power properly. Be careful not bully others. The word "jay" comes from the Latin word "Gaea" which is Mother Earth. A Blue Jay totem links you directly with the power of the Earth itself. It can link the heavens and the Earth and give you access to universal energies and power. If Blue Jay is your totem, you may have tremendous abilities and potential, but you must learn not to be scattered and neglect to develop your abilities to their fullest. Blue Jay people can become dabblers - a little bit of knowledge about many things but master of none. Develop your gifts and you will have unlimited potential." unattributed.
