Blue Moon 001
When there is a second full moon in the same month it is called a “Blue Moon”. I understand where the phrase “Once In a Blue Moon” comes from. Blue moons are rare - every 2.5 years. A blue moon on New Year’s Eve is even rarer - once every 19 years. The New Year’s Eve forecast was for clouds and snow flurries so I didn’t think we would be able to see the moon. The afternoon turned out clear so I drove to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and found about a dozen other photographers and park visitors waiting for the blue moon to arrive. The only clouds were along the horizon and blocked some of the moon’s brightness for the first few minutes. It still made for an interesting photo as the moon peeked out of the openings in the clouds.
