Bad Moon Risin'

So, early this morning, there was a total eclipse of the moon visible in our part of the world.

I confess I did not stay up to watch it all, though I did set my mental alarm to rouse me around totality, went out and had a look.

Conditions were perfect here -- clear skies, and at three a.m., the city glow was as dim as it gets locally.

Very impressive, it was, a creepy orange.

Must have terrified primitive societies, this kind of celestial event, until they realized it was a regular phenomenon.

I always wondered -- does a werewolf revert to human form during a full eclipse? Might be an interesting story there, if somebody hasn't already written it ...
