And as the moon made its way to stardom, I saw something truly marvelous.
You know, so much of parenting is saying "no" and forcing vegetables – but on rare occasion, the heavens align and you're in the perfect position to feed a passion.
I know a lot of people looked up and saw something remarkable this week, but for mothers and fathers like me, the more beautiful sight was the reaction of our precious earthlings.

What do the underlined parts mean? The above comes from

Thanks for your help!

Jason

Dark matter holds everything together.

As for the moon, it's the diameter that's relevant, not size (mass).
