I read about the blue moon and it’s most interesting. The blue moons are rare, and it comes once every 2-3 years and you can say it appears once in a blue moon. A lunar month takes 29.53 days and this is the amount of time it takes for the moon to complete a cycle and here we are nearest to the cycle of a full moon again. So we have a full moon every month and when a month has two full moons, then the second one is called a blue moon. The last blue moon was on December 31st of last year, and our next blue moon will be August 31, 2012. I’ve never noticed the blue moon before and it will be interesting to see one.
October is the Hunter’s Moon. This is the month when the leaves are falling, and starting to change colors in area. By the name of the moon, it’s obviously a hunting season and time to stock up for the long winter months. As for us, it’s hunting for food and the squirrels are hunting for nuts. October’s Moon is also known as the Travel Moon and the Dying Moon, travel I can understand but dying I’m afraid to find out. The photo below was taken yesterday evening. I went for a walk with Lee but she didn’t have the patience to wait for me and this is all I got.
Tonight the moon is a bit fully and brighter, perfect lighting for hunters out there. Happy hunting. 🙂
