Blue Moon Rising Over Seattle

    Newer Older

    The full moon rose directly behind the city Thursday. It was absolutely amazing. It was red when it came up, and as it rose it passed directly behind the top of the Space Needle. Definitely a night to remember.

    Just in case you were wondering why the moon isn't blue: A blue moon is the second of two full moons to occur in the same calendar month.

      That moon looks amazing behind the Seattle Skyline. Kerry park has such a nice view of the city.

      Great shot, I love how the moon is swathed in clouds and lit orange, that is easily my favorite part of this shot. Well done!
