Blue Moon Photo 2012: The Second Full Moon of August
After a couple of days and nights chasing the so-called Blue Moon, here's what we got.
This photo was taken in Kin Village Okinawa, Japan.
The science community might want to argue about this one with me.
As I was walking home after a day of hard work and bar-hopping, it peeked through the clouds.
'twas the night of August 31st when I cracked my first beer.
So, this photo was in my Aug 31, 2012 photo folder.
But, the camera says it was 3:03AM on the 1st of September when the shot was taken.
That's Japan Standard Time because (ahem-ahum) that's where I live.
One of my astronomy buddies will have to tell us if this qualifies as the blue moon.
It sure don't look blue, to me.
There's too many definitions of a blue moon running around on the internet, if you ask me.
So, you can go see what they had to say, if you're interested.
If I'd have really thought I saw the moon turn blue that night here's what I'd have done:
Toss the camera in the house and run back to the bar for a few more beers !
