Whilst everybody else was dancing the night away last night or watched the fireworks display or downed that midnight copa de cava here in Mallorca, I was out and about in search of that first Quarter Moon of 2012. It took me a while to find the goddess. She was pretty low down heading for the horizon but my, was she beautiful. A small cloud tried to cover her modesty.
The first Ful Moon of 2012 will be upon us on January 9th, a week from tomorrow. There will be a Blue Moon later this year, in August. A Blue Moon means that there are two Full Moons during one calendar month.
Happy moon light, and Happy New Year.
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: January 1st, 2012. The time was 00:24:41.
