The Conewango Creek and the Blue Moon

Many people use the moon for planting. My neighbor planned his whole garden around the stages of the moon. I occasionally plant by the moon stages and it does seem to make a difference. But no matter what, whether you are a gardener or not, full moons and the sky at night have a beauty that needs to be appreciated.

This evening was beautiful out. It’s been a bit cold in this area lately so a warmer night, stars and a full moon was a pleasant surprise. The fireflies were also out and frolicking near the gardens, adding more mystery to the evening.

I took my cattle dog Taz out for a late night walk near the Conewango Creek to enjoy the evening and the reflections on the water. The creek in close to 100 feet wide and 35 feet deep just behind the house and gardens. The full moon was casting wonderful dancing light on the gentle current and occasionally we could near fish jumping in the water. The creek bank is lined with majestic oak trees that are around one hundred years old. A late night walk along the creek makes for a relaxing end to a busy day.

This evening, June 20th, there is a Blue Moon. There are four blue moons this year and two more left the rest of the year. If you missed the blue moon tonight make sure you catch the next one.

  1. What makes a blue moon blue? Is it the appearance or is it an extra occurrence? This would be interesting to find out. Exactly when will the next blue moons appear? Just curious.

    I believe the next blue moon is in August but I will check to make sure. This year is unusual having 4 blue moons. Denise
