yes, I noticed Venus Jo, I wasn't sure what it was it was so bright, then I remembered the term 'morning star' and it was obvious. I wondered for a moment if it was some space tourists here for the eclipse, then I remembered that they are more interested in watching our traffic jams going in and out of cities, in their big black triangles.
Oh, and just to add a confirmation that mud moons are bad luck - someone left the gate to the field open after the event this morning, half a dozen rams got in and dessimated my 2 wisteria and my liriodendron. I am not surprised that there won't be another, similar, event like it until 2033. I might just about have got another liriodendron seedling to flowering size by then. Also, strangely, I had a dreadful argument with my husband... probably the moon, and the photograph of it through his camera FROM INSIDE THE FIELD!!
