HA! That Explains why I thought the moon looked so odd last night, I was beginning to think it was the alcohol! It looked quite normal when I went out , large bright full moon, a few pints later and it looked surprisingly small and greenish in hue, the difference in apparent size from when I'd seen it earlier was like the difference between a 50 pence piece and a 5 pence! I spent about ten mins between pubs trying to figure out why it had shrunk. After midnight on the way home I looked again and was surprised to see a bite taken out of its edge.

I just caught the very last of it. Unfortunately, I was not in the right part of the world last night.

And to think the ancients thought this was an evil event, the end of the world and the sign of things to come. It is nothing more than a normal celestial event.
