Blue Moon

On Friday, there was a second full moon in August. It is rare to have 2 full moons in one month and we refer to the phenomenon as a blue moon, hence the expression, “Once in a blue moon”.

Of course the moon was actually its usual golden glow that I was able to glimpse through the maple trees that line my street. It hung there above the bay where the river empties into Lake Ontario. So beautiful, a mirror for our star, the Sun.
