Moon Day
The moon rises over Glastonbury Tor, England

July 20 is National Moon Day, commemorating the first time that a human being set foot on the moon, this day in 1969. Glastonbury Tor, shown here, provides a magical setting for pondering the celestial body, especially during a full moon. It’s said that King Arthur and his knights visited this site in the English county of Somerset, and some believe it to be the Avalon of Arthurian legend.

Glastonbury Tor is a hill near Glastonbury in the English county of Somerset, topped by the roofless St Michael’s Tower, a Grade I listed building. The whole site is managed by the National Trust, and has been designated a scheduled monument.
