Once in a Blue Moon

I ventured down to the New Haven Green to photograph the Christmas tree and when I turned around the moon was beginning to peak over one of the bank buildings. I remembered reading about tonight being a Blue Moon, that is the second full moon in one month's time. It happens only every couple of years. Click here to hear Ella Fitzgerald sing Blue Moon by Hart and Rogers as you look at the photographs.This little landscape is the Green or the center square in the Nine Square plan in which New Haven was developed. The building to the right is the Federal Building Plaza.

Now wasn't that a treat?


  1. A treat indeed.
    The tree is beautiful too.

  2. The tree was lovely this year although I cringe at thinking of cutting down that beauty.

  3. Oh well, it's for a good cause.

    Did y'all in N. America see the partial eclipse of the blue moon?!

  4. Not in these parts of the sky. The sky was grey, grey, grey all day and night blanketing us with 2-4 inches of snow. Thanks for you photo, beautiful.
