Full Moons: An Arrangement

A composite image made by Meiying Lee (Taiwan) of full moons captured on film "over the past 6+ years from home," caught my eye and I think you will find it appealing as well.

Each image makes use of a feature of the moon to arrange the images "to where the moon was in the sky on the night it was photographed."  And using a marker makes the arrangement more comprehensible. This is explained as well as the sometimes noticeable changes in moon size "from one shot to another."

I still have some marbles I've saved and put in a small bowl. I would be very pleased to add any or all of these designs and colors to that bowl. I couldn't help but wonder whether this was even possible.
