Once in a blue moon

There was a beautiful near-full moon tonight and our Somerset Photography Group met to take some fun photos.

Like I’ve said before, it is better to photographer the full moon on the night before it is full because their is still some color in the sky as the moon rises. On nights of a true full moon, the sky turns black when you expose for the surface of the moon.

This full moon is a blue moon, you know, once in a blue moon. A blue moon happens when there is a full moon twice in one month. It doesn’t happen often, once in a blue moon, and the next will be in 2015.
