90% of the moon is crap.

Cloudy in Atlanta for the 3rd week in a row, so no Moon visible here.

also, look up at 9:02pm in MA.  You should be able to see the ISS about 50deg up in the NW travelling E for 3 minutes

I dunno...sounds fishy to me.

Wow, that was boring.

Like a Sturgeon.

Take a look at the night sky while you can since the next Blue Moon isn't set to occur until 2015.

Uhm. Ok. As if this is some rare visual event? It's the moon. 29.5 days from now it will look precisely the same (perhaps visually larger or smaller). It's not as if "blue moon" means dick. It's like saying, "We have to go to Commerce Bank Ballpark, because next season it will be called Wells Fargo Ballpark!"

A couple nights ago the moon was about as cool as I've ever seen it. Sitting low on the horizon, huge and orange and looking like a bad omen. Mostly it made me realize it's already autumn up here in Sweden.

It's a Blue Moon. The Sturgeon Moon isn't for another month.

That article somehow made me want to go out of my way to avoid seeing the moon.

MayoBoy: It's a Blue Moon. The Sturgeon Moon isn't for another month.


No, it's the Sturgeon Moon - They are named by month (in this case, the 4 *summer* moons happened in 4 different months, so each will get a name).

My understanding of the definition of a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month.  This is the first time I've come across this definition.  I'm old enough, and interested enough that I'm now wondering why I've never heard this season based definition before...

I was driving to work at 5:30 am this morning and I saw what looked like a beautiful red nuclear explosion just above the horizon.  It was the moonset through the fog, and it was teh awesome.

If I could figure out how to take pictures with my phone on I-95, this would be a much better post.

The author explained it in the article - the original definition is 4 moons in one season.  Then somebody in a magazine in 1946 got it wrong, and now everyone likes that one better (because the incorrect definition means they happen more often?).

Thank you Theodore.

I've always thought a "blue" moon was the second full moon in a calendar month (which this full moon decidedly is not). So, what is the "official" definition of a "blue" moon if it isn't that? (Aside from a hit song by the Marcels.)

Well, next time I'll preview before posting. Thanx, JID.

When do we blow it up?.

Yeah I can't because of some really heavy cloud cover tonight.  Farking Indiana, you ruin everything.

We have the technology. The time is now. Science can wait no longer. Children are our future. American can, should, must and will blow up the moon.

Easy to tell who didn't use the moon properly. (Hint: Get laid.)

Louisiana_Sitar_Club: Wow, that was boring.

As of a couple minutes ago, it looked like this:

Granted, I'm pretty drunk, so everything looks kind of like that to me right now.
