Frost Moon

You say the moon is oh so beautiful

Have you ever seen it

Last month, almost by an accident, I have noticed that the full moon was different, its luminous glow was more intense and it even seemed closer.

I wondered whether there was some special phenomenon on that day and discovered that each full moon is different. the way we see it from our planet depends on many conditions. Its names vary as well. There may be Wolf Moon, Snow Moon, Worm Moon, Pink Moon…

Last November’s Moon may be cold Frost Moon.

In Japanese there are also old names for months. Curiously,, November is also called 霜月Shimotsuki or Frost Month.

It is inpsiring to look up into the sky sometimes and discover something new.
