I see a red moon a-risin’

You know what a “blue moon” is, and if you don’t, you can look it up, but you don’t have to because I’ll tell you right here and right now–a conjunctive spatio-temporal indicator, by the way, which is both fixed and flexible in, not only the virtual world of the internet, but the virtual world of what passes as reality, which always passes quickly and rather subjectively–anyway, I’ll tell you so you don’t have to wander off and look it up and maybe never return, because, who knows?  Stuff happens.  The phone rings.  There’s a knock on the door.  The plane crashes.  The child is born.

The “blue moon” is the second full moon in a calendar month.  This month does not have that.  What it has is two new moons in one calendar month–one on or about today, the 1st of July, and one on or about the 30th.  I hereby dub such a celestial occurrence a “red moon.”  Pop corks, pour out, and enjoy.
