Silvery Moon - Photo by Jerry Pickard

Jerry Pickard comments, "I had just about given up on getting this shot.  This was the last evening to get a full moon this month. The last two evenings started out clear and then clouded up when the moon came over the horizon. Tonight it started off cloudy and then cleared up as the moon popped up over the ridge at Juanita. It was a bright orange as it rose through the tree line but by the time it had cleared the tree line it was above the low atmosphere and clear of the low level pollution, so-o-o, it was silver when it rose to camera range.

"By the way, the month of March 2013 will not be duplicated for another 823 years. What is so special about March 2013?  It has five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays."

August 2014 will also have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. The next time the pattern will happen in March is 2019. This pattern is nothing more than a 31-day month that starts on a Friday, and such a month occurs almost every year. The "823 years" claim is an Internet hoax.
