Light of the Enigma

Blue Hunter's Moon over Seattle (a.k.a. Blue Moon a.k.a. Blue Mini Moon a.k.a. so many other names).

 

I almost didn't capture this moment because I wasn't feeling that inspired. However, it was the bright, haunting glow of the moonlight which I found undeniable. My mood changed and I resolved to obtain my camera to document the occasion. In retrospect, I am happy with the result. Happy Halloween.

Did you know that the term "blue moon" (such as the saying "once in a blue moon") actually refers to the rare occurrence when two full moons appear in the same calendar month? That's why this particular October has been interesting for astronomy and outer space enthusiasts.

 

There will only be six blue moons between now and 2037, although that year will see two of them.
