Just what it says. Enjoy!

~ in the bible, the moon was made like this: Genesis 1:16    And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
~in the 18th century, the Chinese believed there were 12 moons, that they were made of water, and either a hare or toad lived inside of it
~in Roman mythology, Selene, the moon godess, fell in love with a mortal man, Endymion, and so she cast him in a deep sleep forever without aging, and she comes down to earth each night to kiss Endymion who is said to lie at Endymion on Mt. Latmus in Asia Minor
~ the word Lunatic comes from the words luna which means moon( duh, you knew that,) and tic, or struck because if you sleep under a fool moon at aperently makes you crazy
~in Cyano de Begerac, Cyrano (yeah, the dude with the big nose) is launched towards the moon with fireworks
~it's good luck to jangle change in your pockets, look at the moon, and make a wish

Today on June 15, 2011 a total lunar eclipse will take plase. It's the first of the two total eclipses in 2011.This is a relatively rare lunar eclipse where the center point of Earth's shadow is on the disk.The next center lunar eclipse will be on July 27, 2018. The total eclipse will last 1h and 40 min, the partial will last 3h and 39 min.
This eclipse will be visible completely over Africa and Central Asia, visble rising over South America, Western Africa and Europe and setting over eastern Asia. In western Asia, Australia and the Philippines, the lunar eclipse will be visible just before sunrise.

Moon Names make for an interesting subject.
Known world-round by different titles throughout the centuries, the moon has always fascinated man -and consequentially been a means to project love, longing, mating, planting, harvest, fishing, spawning, and indicative of change and renewal. Man depends on his moon sister. This practicality and love affair is as ancient as antiquity beyond count.


A BLUE MOON is when two full moons occur in a single month. Thus, the second full moon is the one called a "Blue Moon." Conversely, the third full moon that occurs in a season which has four full moons is another definition described as a “Blue Moon.” (Usually each season has only three full moons.) Besides a “Blue Moon,” there are many colours as seen in our atmosphere: Yellow moons, Orange Moons, Pink Moons, Red Moons… depending on where you live and the season!

There are also many names for the moon from various regions worldwide. I have chosen a handful of assorted localities and eras to share some of these names the moon has been given.

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Tell me, moon, you the one who magnificently reign over the fantasies of my inner world, over the deep feelings that seize me, the intuitions that I can not explain, the irrational fears that haunt me ... Tell me, Mother Moon, how can I distinguish the real from the unreal, what I have from what I want, what I can reach from what I never will?.
Tell me, beautiful moon, how to give you my life and stop being afraid of the shadows, of the unpredictabilities of a new day, after waking from a nice dream. Tell me if everybody feels what I feel, if everyone is afraid at every step, if everyone feels alone in the infinite sky ...
