Blue Moon


This past weekend we had a beautiful blue moon. I really wish that the name blue moon was a descriptive one. How cool would it be to see an actual blue colored moon?

I wanted to get out early to photograph it as it came up, but I was unable to. I did catch it a bit later, behind a few whispy nighttime clouds.

Wouldn't an actual blue moon be amazing? your pic is still gorgeous though!

I googled 'blue moon' and the deal is that, if indeed anyone saw an actual blue moon, it was probably due to volcanic ash or other pollutant in the atmosphere...

Great shot! When the blue moon came up at my house, it was actually bright orange.
