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.

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.
