Happy Blue Moon

Camera Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
Exposure 0.006 sec (1/160)
Aperture f/8.0
Focal Length 300 mm
ISO Speed 200

A blue moon refers to the third full moon in a season with four full moons.

Recent popular usage defines a blue moon as the second full moon in a calendar month, but that can happen more than once a year, and not every two to three years like this blue moon on November 21, 2010.  The next blue moon will occur on August 21, 2013.

What a beautiful sight it was rising over our house!

Being outside on this chilly evening allowed me to photograph our Halloween lights before they are exchanged for holiday lights next week.


Here's what they look like from the inside.

Watch out for the ghosts...


...and the eyeballs!
