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

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.

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.
