Blue Moon Shines Over Arizona

Tonight there is a blue moon, as in once-in-a-blue-moon moon and blue-moon-you-saw-me-standing-alone moon.  I want to get a picture of it over Pusch Ridge, my mountain in Tucson, Arizona. It is clearly very blue…

 … but only if I use a blue filter, and I decide that’s cheating.
Here it is without the filter, you can see some blue anyway.

I snap many more pictures and they all turn out with a white moon on top and a blue moon on bottom.

I mess around on Google to figure out some scientific reason why I am getting two moons until I decide I don’t care why.

I really like the pictures and I really like the news headline “Blue Moon Shines Throughout the World.” That’s just such a nice thought.

Okay, one more blue-moon picture and then it’s …..

Good night moon.
