Today sees the arrival of the 'Black Moon', the second new moon this month, a rare event which only happens approximately every two and a half years.
Mrs Darley used to say that the Black Moon was the temptress, one who bewitched and beguiled and in recognition of this we made pentagrams (5 pointed stars) from twigs and twine in order that we might admire the cresecent moon's beauty but not become overwhelmed by her.
Tonight also sees the peak of the Capricornids meteor shower with some slow moving yet brilliant fire balls.
Enjoy all the gifts of the skies tonight.
