A collection of the sunrises and sunsets I have taken in May
A Moon that actually looks blue, however, is a very rare sight. The Moon, full or any other phase, can appear blue when the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size: slightly wider than 900 nm. The particles scatter the red light, making the Moon appear blue. This is known as Mie scattering and can happen for instance after a dust storm, a forest fire, or a volcanic eruption.
Scattering affects the color of light coming from the sky, but the details are determined by the wavelength of the light and the size of the particle. The short-wavelength blue and violet are scattered by molecules in the air much more than other colors of the spectrum.
King George Square which is where Brisbane City Hall is located, has some historical Bronze statues depicting the history of Brisbane..here we see the Petrie Tableau and the Speakers Corner

The full Moon of May 18 is called the Flower Moon in America and the Blue Moon in UK and Australia..
