A Blue Moon for New Years 2010

The full moon this New Years Eve is a "rare blue moon".
About once every 20 years there are two full moons in in the month of December, thus the popular term - "Blue Moon".

For some strange reason lost in time, the term blue moon has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon, just it's timing in the night sky.
The next one won't appear until the year 2028.

On the event of this New Years Eve's Blue Moon, I'm posting a plein air painting I painted in the moonlight a while back to bring in the New Year 2010.
