Most people like a full moon.
I LOVE a full moon.
I ADORE a full moon.
A big full moon, low in the sky, grabs me by the kishkas and never lets me go.
It is awe and wonder and romance and timelessness.
Rising or setting… it’s all the same with me. I’ll take either one.
I think it is the harvest moon that gets me the most.
They say that along with affecting… in fact, creating… the tides, a full moon also can have a powerful effect on people that borders on madness. (Hence, the words ‘lunacy’ and ‘lunatic’)
Last month, on August 31, 2012, those of us lucky enough to have clear skies got to see a Blue Moon – the second full moon in the same month.
It is possible for a month to have no full moon but only if that month is a February.
From now until the year 3000, there are only three years where February has no full moon. Those years are 2572, 2792 and 2944.
In those three years, both January and March have two Full Moons. In other words, a No-Moon February is bracketed by two Blue Moons.
