Beautiful, just beautiful.

They are all wonderful. I can’t pick the winner. Funny how a sunset can brighten your day.

That’s not magic. That’s smog!

My shots came from the Hanna Lane Trail & the top of Haystack Hill. Gorgeous evening.

Everyone else is the winner. Just enjoy!

My shot is of a medical helicopter inbound to John Muir Trauma Center. Taken from about 1 1/2 miles away.

@ Urban Space Man I saw you running up there from you Subaru as I walked my dogs. When I saw the photos I figured it was you. Nice shots dude.

This is one of those posts that makes me wish Claycord had a Like button.

How on earth did I miss that??

I forgot, this is a Blue Moon.

I really like Jules shot…I saw the copter, but I was higher than it and couldn’t get a silhouette shot.

@I’m The Urban Space man, you’re absolutely correct.

Once in a Blue Moon…..
In short, we have a monthly Blue Moon whenever we have 13 full moons in one calendar year, and a seasonal Blue Moon whenever we have 13 full moons taking place in between successive December solstices.

Bottom line: The second of two July 2015 full moons falls today, on July 31, 2015. By popular acclaim, the second full moon to occur in a single calendar month is known as a blue moon. Thanks to what is called the Metonic cycle, 19 years from now, in 2034, we’ll again have another Blue Moon in July. And 19 years after that, there will be another one, in July, 2053.
