It's a full moon tonight, but I doubt I'll see much of it as the sky is covered with a thick layer of cloud. It's a shame, as it's the first full moon of 2008 and I'd like to say "Hi". Never mind, there will be eleven more full moons this year.
You might want to collect your water for mead-making tonight. At my beekeeping course last night the instructor mentioned an old myth that mead (honey wine) should be made with water collected by moonlight. He joked that it must be the reason his mead didn't turn out well, and said he'd have to wait for the next full moon to collect his water. Obviously he didn't know it would be a full moon tonight, and I didn't tell him because I had already asked lots of questions about bee genetics and didn't want to be the annoying kid in the class who always has their hand up with some question or comment.
Thanks to Kerrdelune for the stunning photo.
