Our closest celestial neighbor has kept us company for at least four billion years and has entertained our imagination in a variety of ways. In this view over the Schoinias Beach at Ancient Marathon the Full Moon rises above the location of the first great battle between the Athenians and the Persians about 2500 years ago in the summer of 490 BC. It is commonly referred to as the "Battle of Marathon". Anthony Ayiomamitis/
