Honey Moon and the Queen Reflect
Was chosen by CALB for display at the December 2014 CALB "Shades of Long Beach" exhibit in Long Beach California, Its for those Goosebumps events like this, is why I got into Photography. The June full Moon is nicknamed the Strawberry Moon or the Honey Moon. The June moon is frequently the one nearest to the summer solstice. Which falls on June 21st this year. Due to some cool galactic geometry, this means the full moon from Friday the 13th was the lowest in the sky for 2014. A very rare occurrence that won't happen again for 35 years. The last time it happened was 2000. What makes this such a rarity? It only occurs when three independent variable's line up. The moon phase, the week day and the day of the month. Here the Friday the 13th Honey Moon is rising over the majestic RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach California.
