Once in a… blue supermoon!

Here is the blue supermoon that I just shot in Grants Pass on August 30, 2023 at 10:34pm.

A supermoon is a full moon that orbits the earth a little bit closer than normal, which makes the moon appear bigger and brighter. A blue moon is the second full moon in a given calendar month.

The last full moon seen in August was on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2023. Today’s full moon is the second full moon this month, so it’s a super blue moon or blue supermoon, a pretty rare occurrence in one’s lifetime. According to the Nasa, the next super blue moon is expected in 14 years (2037) and there will be only 3 more occurences in this Century (again in 2050, 2077 and 2083)!
