As I headed to bed I paused to look outside. A brilliant orange crescent moon hung over the valley to the west.
So orange it looked like a piece of that orange jelly candy we used to get in our bags of christmas candies back when I was a little girl.
What is it that makes the moon turn orange? One website says that it is particulate matter.
I guess they're probably right.
But I think I should look up fables and legends. There must be a more romantic explanation.
I hope everyone remembers to take a peek outside tonight. You don't want to miss out on the candy orange moon. The stars are a little bit fuzzy, it is very humid outdoors. But the cicadas and crickets are singing loudly. I think they like the moon, too.
