SkyWatch Friday Season 4 Episode 25 Blue moon


December 31st 2009 saw a blue moon.
The last New Year's Eve blue moon was in 1990.
There will not be another until 2028.
However you welcomed in the New Year - or even if you didn't - I wish you all a Peaceful, Healthy and Happy 2010!

  1. I love your blue moon shots. Great shots of the blue moon.
    We had clouds and rain last night so we couldn't see the moon.

  2. What a shame Eileen but thank you. The clouds were scudding so quickly across our sky that we were lucky to get any shots at all!

  9. This is the first photo of a blue moon I've ever seen--fantastic shot! We had clouds covering the sky last night, so didn't see it. Thanks for sharing it! Happy New Year.

  10. Pamela - thank you:-)
    Margaret - Barry took these through the glass roof of the conservatory (it was COLD outside!)
    He used his Canon EOS 5D MkII
    The first shot was 1/100 sec at f5.6 ISO 3200 with a 300 mm lens f4 with 1.4 extender. Shots 2 and 3 were 1/13 sec at f5.6 ISO 3200 with a 420 mm lens f4L with 1.4 extender. The last one was the same but for 1/60 sec exposure. Hope that makes sense - me, I just point, shoot and hope for the best ;-)
    Sylvia - thank you! I hope you and John have a happy and healthy New Year and that Jack's skin has cleared up, poor little dog!

  13. Wonderful photos of the Blue Moon. It was cloudy here too so I didn't get any shots nearly as clear as yours! Thanks for sharing ;-)

    May the new decade bring you and yours joyful opportunities and experiences!
    Hugs and blessings,

  15. Awesome blue moon pictures. No bad for me, I wanted to take pictures, as well, but rain and clouds fill the skies here. Have a Happy New Year, and thanks for sharing.

  16. Rajesh, storyteller - thank you.
    Chris - thank you. I hope you're not completely snowbound. It looks beautiful but can be a nuisance.
    Ivon - thank you. Bad luck about the rain and clouds - we've had plenty of those too :-)
