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 ?
