The Man in the Moon
It was a lovely evening. Night was out hunting on her black steed, and the long cloud mane fluttered on the wind. I stood at my window watching the Moon. Is there really a “Man in the Moon?”… When I was little they told me that the Moon was a fruit, and that when it was ripe, it was picked and laid away, amid a vast collection of old Full Moons, in a great bureau, which stood at the end of the world, where it is nailed up with boards. ~Heinrich Heine, “The Hartz Journey” (1824), Pictures of Travel, translated from German by Charles Godfrey Leland, 1855 ~
A new moon is the name of the first lunar phase, at a point where the Moon and Sun have the same ecliptic longitude.
Most years have 12 New Moons, 1 each month. But, the calendar that we use is not exactly in step with astrology, so some years have an extra new moon.
