August Blue Moon
In August, we had two full moons. By modern folklore, that makes the second full moon (above) a "blue moon" (the second full moon of a month). However, according to Wikipedia, a blue moon is actually the appearance of the third full moon in a season that has four full moons, instead of the usual three. (The moon isn't actually blue, as some friends of mine were disappointed to find out; magnificent nonetheless.)
There was a bit of hype about the moon, so I thought I'd try to shoot it. I got the moon rising next to the Smithsonian castle. I think it's a nice shot. I would have liked to get it rising over the Capitol, but the moon rose just a bit too far south.
