Once In A Very Blue Moon

 This weekend there was a rare Seasonal Blue Moom. And I was there with my camera when it rose!



It was huge and orange! A seasonal Blue Moon is different from the regular ones. It is when a season has four full moons instead of three, and it is the third one.


This only happens once every two or three years. Oh, and if you were expecting an actual blue moon, here you go! Edited, of course...


There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.

I've never seen a blue or orange moon, we try but there always seems to be too many clouds.

Amazing photos. I walked out to my car Sunday morning to go to work and thought of you when I saw the moon in the sky

Is it like some years have 366 days? Interesting - I had no idea that was even counted. Beautiful photos tho.

Great pictures. Due to lingering smoke, the moon looked more orange than blue over here. of course I never really expected it to be blue.

Pretty pictures, Ginny. We saw it too as there wasn't a cloud in the sky. No pictures though, which is odd as youngest daughter always takes pictures. Oh well, we'll just enjoy your beautiful ones! Thank you for them too! ~Andrea xoxoxo

Even I captured the moon, this with my phone, but I think it was because it was smoky. You are just fantastic at capturing the moon in all its glory. Thank you for these beautiful pictures.
