BLUE MOON 2012





I want to share my photos of the Blue Moon last night.
 
 
Despite of it's name,
the moon is not blue as some people expect.
It is the second moon in a calendar month
and it happens only once every
2-3 years.

 
To see a blue-colored moon is very rare,
 unusual sky conditions such as certain-sized particles of dust or smoke
can create blue-colored moon.
The last blue-colored moon was when Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines errupted in 1991.
 
 
And what a tribute to Neil Armstrong,
Blue Moon happened on the day of his Funeral.
 
"Godspeed, Neil Armstrong!"
 
 
 
 
I'm amaze with the shots I took with just using my T3i .Great camera!





Despite the thick clouds I manage to get a few great shots.
