I was one of the many who weren’t able to resist taking snapshots of the full moon last night. It was playing hard to get though. In a split second it was fully shown, the next time it was partly covered by clouds. In a way, it was fun achieving the right time to click the shutter. Another just in time moment was that I was in this particular area of Corniche for the UAE National Day celebration. The humble skyline added to the sight.
Did you know that the blue moon would be appearing soon?
We would often hear the phrase “once in a blue moon”. That means it would happen only once every two-three years. In a month’s time, a full moon comes. However, when it has two full moons, the second is termed “blue moon”. This coming December 31 (yay, in time for the New Year’s eve), we will meet one. Will it be literally colored blue? No. The color just implies that it’s something rare. The next blue moons will appear on 31 August, 2012 and 31 July, 2015.
