When the rare Blue Moon gave us a spectacular site, I took advantage of it. The next one will not occur until January 2018 so I deemed it worthy to head out and capture it.


Blue Moon over NYC photos

Of course it is highly unlikely that the moon will appear blue since that usually needs another cosmic event to change the color from the usual pale white. The most common occurrence of actual blue moons would be from volcanic eruptions or large forest fires which disrupt the visual spectrum. 


Here in the NYC area we are “lucky” enough to have enough other particulates in the air to color the moon a bright orange as it rises.


In case you were wondering... yes, it's two shots put together to form the perfect composition.
