looking up

moon over RV park, Clarksville, TN

When you get up before daylight and turn on the local news, which at this time is Nashville, you are told to go out and see the full moon which will be setting soon, and they even show some pictures sent in by viewers.

According to News2, this is a seasonal blue moon, as opposed to the normal blue moon, which happens only once in a blue moon…

According to the online Huffington Post: "This month's full moon, which rises on Tuesday (Aug. 20), is not just a Blue Moon — it's also the Full Sturgeon Moon, the Full Red Moon, the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon."

At least it is not a bad moon rising.

It is apparently a slow news day here, a good thing all in all. So take time out from your busy morning schedule to stop smell the roses and check out the full moon, I did, and it's awesome!

Actually I stayed up until after midnight trying to photograph this full moon. Sadly, none of my photos came out as well as yours. Thanks for sharing.
