Mother Nature has been a bit fickle lately, so even though the weather report (at least the one I saw) called for clear skies Saturday night, I decided to play it safe and grab some shots of the Full Blue Moon on Friday night (technically, only 9 hours before it officially turned full).
Good thing I did! Both nights ended up cloudy, but lucky for me, La Luna peeked her face out from behind the curtain of clouds long enough for me to capture her with my camera.
So here are a handful from the 30th, and a ~~shit ton~~ whole bunch from last night. I think I took something like 180 shots, deleted over 100 for various reasons (blurry, redundant, boring), then narrowed it down to the two dozen-ish photos below. I’m posting them in the order I shot them, and there are a few star snaps as well (even thought they might look like just a black rectangle – gotta practice capturing those celestial bodies a bit more – LOL!).
Hope you enjoy the show!
Oh, and before I forget, these were all taken in my Durham, NH yard by yours truly.

March 31st, 2018 – Full Blue Moon
Super! I love those circular ones with the branches.
They are, as always, amazing. As a child I thought a blue moon was blue. In my head it still is. I think that’s why the one in the middle of a spot of blue is my favourite.
