Wow! We made it through January. Which means we had our first Super Blue Blood Moon in over 150 years or so.
- Super Moon – Moon is closest to Earth and therefore appears bigger
- Blue Moon – Two full moons in one month
- Blood Moon – Lunar eclipse because the moon looks red.
That’s one for the books. I mention it here because I always like the image of a blue moon in February… (time between full moons being every 29.5-ish days (depending)
Today’s Prompt: Special Moon

Today’s Prompt: Future past tense.
