Blue Moon: 2012

     For the first time in 2 years we have a Blue Moon.   The moon was full on August 2, 2012 and again on August 31, 2012.   This is a great and rare anomalies that occurs as they say, "once in a blue moon", and is usually one of the more spectacular moon appearances.   There are 12.36 lunar cycles per year, so the blue moon only appears every 2 to 3 years.     As I left the boat this morning, I was struck by a really great view of the blue moon and its reflection on the gulf.
