Blue Moon

సెప్టెంబర్ 1, 2012

ఆగష్టు 2012 చివరి రోజున అధిక భాద్రపదంలో ఏర్పడిన పౌర్ణమినాటి (Blue Moon) చంద్రుడి ఫొటోలు. ఆకాశం మేఘావృతమై ఉన్నందున, ఫొటోలు ఆశించినంత మెరుగ్గా రాలేదు – కానీ ఫరవాలేదు…

A blue moon can refer to either the third full moon in a season with four full moons, or the second full moon in a month. Most years have twelve full moons that occur approximately monthly. In addition to those twelve full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains roughly eleven days more than the lunar year of 12 lunations. The extra days accumulate, so every two or three years (7 times in the 19-year Metonic cycle), there is an extra full moon. Lunisolar calendars have rules about when to insert such an intercalary or embolismic (“leap”) month, and what name it is given; e.g. in the Hebrew calendar the month Adar is duplicated. The term “blue moon” comes from folklore. Different traditions and conventions place the extra “blue” full moon at different times in the year. In the Hindu calendar, this extra month is called ‘Adhik (extra) masa (month)’. It is also known as purushottam maas, so as to give it a devotional name.Wikipedia
