Once In A Blue Moon: Happy New Year!

Once in a blue moon...  Setting moon on New Year's Day

New Year's Day 2010 ~ Last night marked the last "Blue Moon" on New Year's Eve for the next nineteen years.  I had planned to capture it before turning in, but the best laid plans...

This morning I woke at 6:45, grabbed the camera, and set off to capture that same Blue Moon before it disappeared over the western horizon.  As dawn broke, I was at the edge of Saguaro National Park and took this shot to share with you on the first day of the New Year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog; I expect that this will be a great year for your business and for mine.  Come back often; I'll be here!

 

EDIT:  Send me a snail mail address through Active Rain, and I'll be sure to mail you a postcard made from this photo.  (It's Bruce Brockmeier's fault...)

Blue or made out of Cheese it still looks great. Have a wonderful 2010.

Posted by Terry & Bonnie Westbrook, Westbrook Realty - Grand Rapids Forest Hills MI Re (Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner) about 11 years ago

The night before my wife and I got a beautiful bright orange moonset over the Pacific Ocean. It happens a few times a year just as the sun is rising and the moon is setting. Sometimes it's hard to discern which one's the moon and which ones the sun. I'm only sorry I didn't get a pic of it. Good going. Next time I'll be more on the ball.

Mike - This is a terrific shot.  I was surprised to see the full moon last night, then even more surprised to hear that it was a blue moon.  :)

Posted by Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate (512-796-7653) (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) about 11 years ago

It is a beautiful picture, Mike...but can anyone explain what a "blue moon" is? It's one of those  phrases that I've heard all my life, but never bothered to find out exactly what it refers to or what it means...
