New Moon Time

New Moon (lunar/solar conjunction) was at 12:42 AM Pacific Standard time.

I always feel better once the moment of New Moon is past. Not that I'm all astrological or anything. It's just that, well the brain being mostly fluid, I am sensitive to the movement of the tides, including brain tides.

Besides, back in the days of playing NetHack, the program would note the system date, calculate the phase of the moon, and titrate the number and severity of enemies in your dungeons according to the degree of darkness of the moon.  "You're in luck, full moon tonight!" was a good message to see at the beginning of a NetHack session.






If you know what this is . . . then you'll know what this is!

Happy New Moon!  Don't party too hard.
