Once in a Blue Moon… Happy New Year!

New Years is always a weird time for me. If I let myself, I could get “all weird and reflective”.  I’m not much of a cry-er so I don’t like to be weird and reflective.  Is that strange?  (Don’t answer that.)

I took some photos of the blue moon last night.  What is a blue moon?  Well, according to  wikipedia.. “A blue moon is a full moon that is not timed to the regular monthly pattern. Most years have twelve full moons which occur approximately monthly, but in addition to those twelve full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains an excess of roughly eleven days compared to the lunar year. The extra days accumulate, so that every two or three years (7 times in the 19-year Metonic cycle), there is an extra full moon.”

I went out for just a minute to take a few photos.  I didn’t think about

taking photos when it was low in the sky and looked blue.

How creepy is this photo? It’s probably my favorite.  No re-touching

to this.. pretty cool huh?

Happy New Year!
