If there are two full moons in one calendar month, the second is called a “blue moon.”  Last night’s full moon was a blue moon, and I really wanted to photograph it because there will not be another one for three years.   Due to the hills and trees that surround our house, I had to stay awake until after 1:00 a.m. for the moon to be high enough in the sky to be photographed.  But alas, I could not photograph it due to the heavy cloud cover here.

I had done a practice shot the night before, using my small telephoto lens. Here’s the photo, and I doubt that the moon would have looked any differently had I been able to see it last night…
