Hi Gang,

Whilst it would seem to be just another, albeit very nice, picture of a full moon. This one is a Blue Moon (second full moon in the same calender month) over the Capitol Building in Washington DC. Take a look at the image here http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/blue-moon-over-washington and take the time to look at the false colour image of Pluto beneath it-amazing!!

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
