Blue Moon

The Spit, Gold Coast

 

I had been thinking about getting a shot of the Milky Way over a life guard tower for a while and this particular weekend turned out to be the perfect time for it with the appearance of a second full moon for the month.

 

A full moon that rises twice in one month is called a blue moon. It happens because sometimes the number of days in a calendar month are greater than the cycle of the moon, which is 29.5 days. This means you can get a second full moon near the first and the last days of the same month. It is said that blue moons happen every 33 months or about every 3 years. This relatively rare occurrence has spawned the saying “once in a blue moon”.

 

Whenever the moon is this low in the sky we see it through a thick atmosphere which is what causes it to turn yellow, orange or red, just like the setting sun.

Stretched Canvas prints are gallery wrapped and arrive ready to hang, while a Rolled Canvas comes rolled in a thick cardboard tube for you to stretch on your own, or to display as you wish. Acrylic Panels and HD Metal Prints come with an in-set wooden frame attached to the back that give an amazing floating appearance once hung on your wall. As all framed prints are unique we quote every frame on request. Please contact us for framing prices or to discuss your framing needs.
