As perhaps you can guess from that big fat moon thing in the left-hand column, I have a bit of a thing about the moon. The past couple of nights there has been a lovely moon-venus conjunction. In our part of the world, it was exceedingly beautiful Monday night. I saw it as I got off the train, on the way to my yoga class and just after it (about 9 pm.) The moon was a waxing crescent, and slightly pale orange, and Venus was about three moon diameters away, above and to the right, and looked very blue and twinkly.
