ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

Post by Pumpkin_Head » Sun Nov 01, 2020 5:09 pm

Hi Folks:

Yesterday was the most unique Halloween of our lives, because for the first time since 1944, we had ourselves a BLUE MOON. I shot some photos, and I thought you would like to take a look.

Here is an image I shot with the color taken out.

This image will makes it actually look blue, but it's a filter.  Not the actual color of the moon.

Thanks for sharing those.

I haven't had the right camera kit for astrophotography in years.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I didn't have any astrological photography gear to speak of at all. I have a really nice Cannon 5D Mark 4 camera and a zoom lens which did the trick. Unfortunately I had to shoot at the lower resolution so I could post it online.

They are nice shots though.

Thanks for sharing those! Around here, the moon actually had a halo around it, almost a lunar rainbow. My son, who has a new phone, got some great photos of it.

That probably won't happen again for at least another 76 years.
