Full moon and it’s freezing outside, the two of them often go together here in West Cork (and perhaps elsewhere). I never get tired of watching the moon, and the stars too for that matter. They fascinate me beyond any reason. They make me feel as if we are not alone in this universe, they are like kindred neighbours that travel with us throughout time and distance, distance into the unfathomable cosmos. It is both awe inspiring and so incredibly interesting to look up at the night sky, especially of course with a telescope, but even a pair of binoculars can give a lot more than the naked eye can. Both beautiful and fascinating!
