2009 is the International Year of Astronomy and I’d like to kick it off with “Pink Moon” by Nick Drake (1948-1974). The moon becomes pink during a lunar eclipse, traditionally considered a bad omen. Drake’s depression was his personal “pink moon”:

I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
Its a pink moon
Its a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

To me, of course, the pink moon of a lunar eclipse is pure magic.
