Details:
Despite some clues such as the blueish reflections on our natural satellite (coming form the Christmas decorations that sorround the church below) and on the river Po (that crosses Turin), of course the tonight superbright full Moon is not a "Blue Moon", as today is just the 1st of December and the real Blue Moon will be on the last night of the year. That's why I like to name this picture: "Not a Blue Moon". To complete the scene, if you zoom on the top right of the Moon you can see the Pleiades star cluster. Technical details: Canon Eos 1000d; Exp: 10 sec; F/6.3; ISO 100; focal lenght: 27 mm
