The Moon is Smiling

Thanks to a comment from Jennifer, we took a break from the Superbowl to sneak a peek at the moon last night:

Dawn - What do you call tonight's moon? It's a crescent, but it's hanging at the bottom, like a horseshoe. My daughter says Native Americans have a special name for it but google isn't helping. Thanks! Jennifer

I had to look it up, too, Jennifer! It rang a bell, but I couldn't quite remember the significance of this shape. This site explains the "smiling crescent" quite well.

Hope this helps a bit, and dear readers, if you have any additional information on this kind of moon - please drop me a note below!

Have a great Monday, everyone ... :)
