Once in a Blue Moon....

Remington, your moon watching specialist,
reporting directly from the new 

What a day....we are all buzzing around
with excitement as tonight the will be
ANOTHER full moon.
Yes, my friends, that is TWO full moons
 in one month!

This one is called a

It is definitely unusual!

A 'Blue Moon' does not necessarily mean 
that the Moon will appear to be the color blue.

Instead, this term refers to the second full moon
within the same month. 
While blue moons are rare, they
can be predicted to take place
every three years or so, 
with the next one scheduled to take place
in July 2015.
I will be certain to give you a full
report on that one too!

I hope the clouds stay away so Mr. Mike
gets an awesome picture of this one!

Listen carefully about 9:43 pm....
I will be howling at you!

Have a great Labor Day weekend, 
my friends!

Later -- Remington -- 
as they say....
once in a Blue Moon....
-- out!

Does it count if I saw the moon this morning at 5:30 looking nearly full? I have a feeling I'll be in bed by 9:43 tonight. Long week!♥♫

Priscilla said...

Does it mean that the full moon that we have it right now is the Blue Moon? It is 9:44pm here and the full moon is still with us.

Priscilla said...

Oh, I forgot to tell you that Rosie has taken many moon pictures too!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Rem
Good to see you hard at work in RRC.
We read about the blue moon predicted for tonight last weekend and were looking forward to seeing it. As it stands right now it is cloudy so we have everything crossed in hopes of the clouds moving before the moon rises
Hugs Madi your BFFF

We don't think we will be able to see that blue moon tonight because we finally have some steady rain. But we will still do our best to belt out a good howl.
