Once in a Blue moon

Well this is a rare one. Tomorrow night we will be privileged to witness the very rare blue moon. Although it is very unlikely that the moon will actually be blue in colour. The blue moon is the name given to the second full moon to occur within the same calendar month. August already gave us the Sturgeon Moon on the 1st of the month so this one is a real bonus!

Last night I drove across town at about 7:30pm. The sky was a very pale blue and just above the roof tops sat the most enormous moon with just a corner missing. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with my – typical.

Happy moon gazing.
