I woke up in the early hours of the morning to the sound of a large crash. I got out of bed and wandered around the house, but couldn't find what had caused it so I looked out of the window to see if anything out there was to blame. What I saw was the most beautiful full moon.
Now, of course that wasn't what had caused the noise, but it was breathtakingly lovely. I stood there staring out of the window at the silver disc glowing in the indigo night sky and remembered that it was not only the time of the full moon, but it was also a blue moon.
I still have no idea what made the sound that woke me, but I'm glad it did.
There was also a blue moon last August, and this was what I wrote about it: http://www.badwitch.co.uk/2012/08/blue-flowers-for-blue-moon-in-august.html
