Pagan Eye: Beautiful Moon III

As there is a full moon today, I thought it was a good time to post the fourth in the series of lovely photographs of the moon sent to me by James C Wallace II. The first three pictures showed a bare tree with the moon behind it, a crescent moon and a partial lunar eclipse.

This picture is called Blue Moon. Blue moons are considered to be rare - and beautiful - events. However, there is some disagreement over the actual definition of a blue moon. The most common idea is that whenever there is a second full moon in a single month, it is called a blue moon. That next happens in August 2012.

To read about other definitions of a blue moon, look at my post on the blue moon that took place last New Year's Eve.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures.

If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.

OHHHH! That's what a Blue Moon is! LOL I always say, "once in blue moon" and I had no idea why! Thanks for that.
