There is a dog moon tonight and this only happens on rare occasions. They call it that because of the werewolf legend. I was looking forward to it but its cloudy and I cant see it at all. Cold front coming in. Such a pitty too as I was looking forward to growing some hair back and maybe having an appetite for a nice juicy rare steak. This could have been an opportunity to get some strength back , maybe run and jump like long ago. Oh well,,,I would probably have eaten something that gave me diarrhea and then I would have no toilet paper and even if I did what about those claws. I dont relish the thought of dragging my butt around in on the grass anyway. Thats gotta hurt. no wonder they howl at the moon..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I went and took a look but it's kinda foggy out so the view wasn't too good. Might be partially due to it being 1F outside.

Oh too bad! That would have answered the age-old question -- do Werewolves poop in the woods? I didn't think they would need toilet paper. But a werewolf with D would be very scary! And werewolf gas would be terrifying!

Yep missed my chance, but look, the moon had some effect, old Viet Vet came out . Does that mean we will have an early spring . Nanners, not to worry about a pebble, we have thistles, bur clover, stinging nettle and cockleburs. Owwwwwww. Maybe its better that I didn't change. VV its too cold for gators but the pecans were very good this year. The squirrels were afraid of me , no howls needed. Rando, can you use that telescope to spy on the neighbors ?? Glad you guys got a smile out of this one, I have to go clip my cla,,,,nails now......

I don't want it to seem like you are being hounded here, old man(?), but are you sure you would notice that much difference ? idea Are you sure it's not just the extra moonlight that lets you see what is already there ? (Or to rephrase, "howl the neighbours know it's you" turn)
But one question burns at me like a claw lost where the sun doesn't shine...what is a dog moon ? confused

I never heard of it either. I was surprised that Wikipedia doesn't have a page on it. But I finally tracked it down:

http://home.hiwaay.net/~krcool/Astro/moon/moonring/

Moon dogs are the paler version of sun dogs: bursts of light often in reds and blues that appear on both sides of the moon. Both phenomena are the work of almost invisible clouds that reside in the atmosphere where commercial airliners cruise, at about 30,000 feet. The clouds are composed largely of ice crystals, known as diamond dust. The official name for a moon dog is a paraselene if seen at 22 degrees. If the image is at 90, 120 or 140 degrees then it's known as a parantiselene.

At least, I think that's right. A "moon dog" is the same phenomena as a "dog moon," isn't it?

By the way, in the Chinese lunar calender, it's still 2009, and this is the last full moon of the year. February 14 will be a new moon, and the beginning of the year of the tiger. In case you wanted to know.

cheers,

oh! the neighbors will recognize that 'moon' from exposure through glass manufactured by ford, chevrolet, and honda over many years in that area. not only a practitioner, but a connoisseur of everything 'moon' ........ from moonpies to moonshine. if officer boudreaux ever catches him, he'll know the meaning of 'blue moon'! nono

ozonehole, thanks for the scientific version. I had no idea what caused them to look that way. Snow , thats not the ,,porcelain ,,,we spend so much time sitting on although I do end up with a ring around my moon after long sits. Guess Randi could use his telescope for a better look but I never use one myself. I have no desire what so ever to see ,Uranus...are anyone elses for that matter....

VV, never a blue moon. You have that one sewed up with the cold up there. Have had red moon, ring around the moon and moonbeams though. Never was one to look at the moon through the back glass of the chevy, alway had my eyes on another heavenly body at those times.

Looking Out My Back Door when I heard the Midnight Special I saw Down On The Corner that unFortunate Son that was Born On The Bayou getting ready to cook some Jumbalaya and he wanted to know if I have Ever Seen The Rain after my Run Thru The Jungle and he warned me not to go out tonight there was a Bad Moon On The Rise (or did he say there was a bathroom on the right?)  I Heard It Thru The Grapevine of Proud Mary Lou and Suzie Q that he could Put a Spell On You.  You see to this Sailor's Lament My Baby Left Me so me and my friend Miss Molly you know that Brown Eyed Girl are going Up Around the Bend to make Commotion.
