I like the Mallorcan moon. To me the presence of the moon, and in particular that of the Full Moon, is one of utter beauty and poise not often seen in Northern Europe.
You may have seen the Full Moon last night. There was nothing special about that; after all we have a Full Moon every 29.5 days. But wait, August 2012 is one of those rare months with two Full Moons. There will be a second Full Moon on August 31st, 2012.
Yesterday’s Full Moon was not what you might call a Blue Moon but the second Full Moon this month will be called that. When people use the expression once in a blue moon they are referring to the rarity of the occurrence of a second moon happening in the same given month.
The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca. The date: August 2nd, 2012. The time was 23:42:34.
