Photo Flash: Blue Moon
5 January, 2010 Tuesday // Photo Flash
Did anyone catch the Blue Moon on New Year’s Eve (December 31st)? I read an article about it a couple days before and was planning to see it, but then totally forgot. It was only apparent in a couple continents—if I remember correctly, North America, Europe, South America, and Africa. Asia and Australia received the special event right on New Year’s Day. Blue moons are considered rare because it means two full moons in one month; that’s a lot of bright moonshine. They’re not actually blue or have even a bluish tinge. It’s just the sight of a beautiful and bright full moon. :thinking: Thank you, Moon, for giving us such a moony entrance into the new year.
