It Was Definitely Blue August 22, 2010

What did I see?  There was definitely a blue ring around the full moon last night.  I’m a bit puzzled.  Was this really a blue moon?  or something else?

The ring around the moon doesn’t show up in these photos but believe me, that ring was very blue and very striking.  Dublin Ireland, 10:30 p.m. Saturday, August 28, 2010

On this website I found a photo taken in 2001 from the Hubble Telescope.

  NASA photo for the day August 22 2010 – the photo was taken in 2001

It’s definitely what “my blue moon” looked like last night.
