It was wonderfully bright here in Oz and I noted the date of 01.01.10 - must be portentious!

If anyone is still following this - a blue moon is the second full moon within one month - fairly rare - once every two-three years. Having the event coincide with our calendar's New Year's Eve must be incredible. It is possible to calculate but I'm not doing it. Those late evening walks sound incredible - so - quintessentially English!

It was certainly very light at 3am walking home, wrapping my cloak round me to keep warm. A blue moon is when you get two new moons in the same month, isn't it? Happy new year, one and all

Later that night . . . . lovely and clear, saw the full moon and it seemed to have a smoke ring round it, a reflection in the clouds maybe. Lovely anyway!

I'm so disappointed that it's cloudy here. But I guess the moon is still up there, being new and blue and, actually, it's being partially eclipsed too!!!
