Once in a Blue Moon …

August 31st, 2012 § 3

August’s Blue Moon —99% Full Last Night— Rises in the Dusty-Violet Twilight

This month’s Blue Moon —also the last full moon of summer— will rise tonight at 7:08pm ET. Be sure to catch it, or you’ll have to wait almost three years to see another one! The next time two full moons will occur in the same month won’t be until July, 2015. Learn more about the Blue Moon at Space.com. You can also explore a list of moon names and find a full moon calendar and a complete lunar phase calendar at The Farmers’ Almanac online, here.

Enjoy the Celestial Show!

    Great photo Michaela! Guessing those wonderfully curvilinear clouds are leftovers with our thanks to the former Isaac? Hope your Blue Moon was awesome!! xo D.

    Thank you, Deb. It was a beautiful evening here in Vermont.
    As for Isaac’s remnants, I’m told we may get considerable rain in a day or two. This, of course, makes a post-Irene-marooned Vermonter more than a little bit nervous. Time to prep the driveway! xo M

    Ah, it’d be great if you could send some of it this way then; they’re only predicting 1-3mm on Tuesday and Thursday for us. Good luck whichever way it goes: ) xo D
