Moon Walk
Harvest Moon

Mooning

Moon River

Lasso The Moon

Man In The Moon

The other Mooning

Blue Moon

To The Moon Alice!

Goddess of The Moon – Diana  (from Roman Greek Mythology)

Honeymoon

Over The Moon

  1. Oh what an incredibly gorgeous shot…..the yellow stands out beautifully in the dark sky – WARM rather than the cool moon we usually see. I tried REALLY hard to come up with a “moon” you missed in your list but alas – I couldn’t!

  2. You asked for it – you got it.
    Each full Moon of the year has its own name, most of which are associated with the weather or agriculture. The most common names used in North America include:
    January — Moon after Yule
    February — Snow Moon
    March — Sap Moon
    April — Grass Moon
    May — Planting Moon
    June — Honey Moon
    July — Thunder Moon
    August — Grain Moon
    September — Fruit Moon (or Harvest Moon)
    October — Hunter’s Moon (or Harvest Moon)
    November — Frosty Moon
    December — Moon before Yule
    What is a Blue Moon and when is the next one?
    Because the time between two full Moons doesn’t quite equal a whole month, approximately every three years there are two full Moons in one calendar month. Over the past few decades, the second full Moon has come to be known as a “blue Moon.” The next time two full Moons occur in the same month (as seen from the United States) will be August 2012. That will be Aug 31st!
    Beautiful photo!
