We are watching the lunar eclipse - under near perfect conditions. The moon is full - there is not a cloud in the sky; the drama played out amidst a panoply of stars. Only a sliver of silver remains. The moon becomes a small red disc. Sun, earth and moon are aligned. The moon has gone. This is powerful medicine.
We look up into the vast foreverness of the sky, shiver a little as the cold night air settles on our shoulders and come back in to Google prosaic explainations.
Give me the mystery and magic any day.
