Abstract. In clear sky, full moon like horned bull with Cyclops eye. Left hemisphere (side) of moon - feathery, snow-capped. Right hemisphere - blue sea and brown crater surface. Beneath the moon, red lightening (blood smear?) streaks through the sky. From a cusp of another planet (earth?), flames shoot up toward the moon.
