Moon Rock Window

Moon Rock Window, National Cathedral, Washington, DC, August 2004

I've been there exactly twice (August 2004 & March 2005) and was in total awe both times. The Washington National Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul is just such a sacred and beautiful place. This pictue was taken in late August 2004. There is a piece of moon rock in the window, hence the nickname. Woodrow Wilson, the only U. S. President to be buried within the District of Columbia, and his second wife, Edith Bolling Galt Wilson, are entombed in the crypt near this window, which is located above the side aisle on the Epistle side of the Cathedral's Nave.
