Blue Moon and Mars as seen from Singtam, Sikkim

Today was a Blue Moon, a word more popular in phrases, as we often say once in a blue moon. A blue moon simply nothing but when two full moons fell in the same calendar month, an event that usually occurred every 2½ years, indeed a rare occasion.

I was wondering about some spectacular scenes across the sky but later on the  fog  failed my expectation.  The above photograph was taken at Singtam around 7,15 pm, and a small red dot near the moon is a planet Mars that happens to be a mere 61.7 million miles from Earth, isn't it interesting ?

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
