new year's eve was also notable for the occurrence of a blue moon, the second full moon in a calendar month. this happens every two years or so and at a new year every nineteen odd years. combined with a partial eclipse tho? a special event. i phoned geo and the people i;d left behind and from our different vantage points we got ourselves out. i looked thru t's new astronomical binoculars. the second picture is taken from my back step using my old but what i thought was decent digital camera. the first is taken with steve's camera phone. annoyingly better technology!
Full Moon and Little Frieda
A cool small evening shrunk to a dog bark and the clank of a bucket -
And you listening.
Cows are going home in the lane there, looping the hedges
The moon has stepped back like an artist gazing amazed at a work.
That points at him amazed.
