|Actually I seem to have two moons here. I blame the camera.|
Apparently a blue moon is when there are two full moons in a month. It's not supposed to happen often, hence the expression 'Once in a blue moon.' January 2014 doesn't have a blue moon, but it does have two new moons.
(I think March does too.)
The new moon is supposed to be a good time to make a start on things. So we get two chances to start over for the opening of 2014.
If you look closely, you might just spot the evening star.
I'm making a note of the stars, seasons and traditional festivals at the moment for a work that is not yet in progress but is hanging about in my brain and generally making a nuisance of itself. I'm also making notes on the weather, and there is certainly a bit of that about lately. Part of the 'research' is taking pictures, so I'll remember what the moon, stars and sky looked like.
Today I thought I'd share a couple.
