there's a full moon rising, let's go dancing in the light

rrrobyn, Monday, 24 September 2007 17:15 (twelve years ago) link

but why
The yellow or golden or orangish or reddish color of the moon shortly after it rises is a physical effect, which stems from the fact that, when you see the moon low in the sky, you are looking at it through a greater amount of atmosphere than when the moon is overhead.

The moon officially turns full when it reaches that spot in the sky diametrically opposite (180 degrees) to the sun in the sky. This moment will occur on Wednesday at 19:45 Greenwich Time (3:45 p.m. EDT or 12:45 p.m. PDT). Wednesday's full moon is the one that comes the closest to the September equinox so this year it falls in September, although in one out of three years this title can be bestowed upon the October full moon (as was the case in 2006).

there are many different kinds of moons. there is even a beaver moon (nov 24)

rrrobyn, Monday, 24 September 2007 17:35 (twelve years ago) link

that link is wrong re. blue moons. blue moons aren't a 2nd full moon in a month, they're the name given to the 3rd full moon in a (rare) season with 4 full moons.

The Moon may always have gone around the Earth. According to this idea, the two objects were formed as close neighbors in space. On the other hand, the Moon may once have been a separate planet that was later "captured" as it strayed too near the Earth. But scientists now think that a third explanation is most likely correct. According to this idea, the Moon was formed from material splashed out of the Earth when another object, about as big as the planet Mars, slammed into our world.

Folklore about the origin of the festival go like this: In remote antiquity, there were ten suns rising in the sky, which scorched all crops and drove people into dire poverty. A hero named Hou Yi was much worried about this, he ascended to the top of the Kunlun Mountain and, directing his superhuman strength to full extent, drew his extraordinary bow and shot down the nine superfluous suns one after another.

the first story i ever got published, at age eight, was about this kid that renamed each phase of the moons for one of his friends and saved the gibbous crescent for himself. it was titled -- wait for the brilliance -- 'alex moon'

waht does it taste like

Catsupppppppppppppp dude 茄蕃, Sunday, 30 September 2007 16:22 (twelve years ago) link

it tastes kind of weird - kind of like sweet red bean paste but less beany, more sugary. you can get different kinds though. i've had one with an egg yolk in the middle where the filling tasted more like custard. the egg yolk was very hard and sugary and i could not deal with it, but the rest was nice.
