I arrived at home last night just in time to see the blue moon (the third of four full moons in a season) at its peak, 7:45 pm in New Mexico. I was ready to step out on the front porch to enjoy it when we received an email from a neighbor.
He had seen this
or was it this?
just moments before in the backyard. I once saw a bobcat during the day walking along our fence line and it didn’t scare me much at 25 pounds or so, but I still don’t really want to startle one in the dark. The mountain lion is a whole different deal. I don’t fancy encountering one of them day or night.
I decided the best place to view the full moon was from the window in my study.
