Full Moon Fever

Last night I watched the total eclipse of the Moon. It was spectacular, although I had to be patient- these things take time. The colour of the Moon was haunting and, when it was without light, looked like a painting of mars against a dark black background. The Moon seemed out of place without it's light from the Sun. I am always comforted by the fact that if I look up into the blackness of a night sky the moon is always there, seemingly watching over me and blessing me with it's bright white reflected light. I wonder what it would be like on a world where there was two, or even three moons???
