Photographer Captures Halloween Blue Moon Timelapse in California Sky

The appearance of the first blue moon on Halloween in 19 years was an ideal opportunity for California-based photographer Craig Philpott to capture some timelapse imagery.

Philpott tweeted that he used a Panasonic HC-X2000 professional camcorder to capture the footage on October 31.

He added that he edited the footage using Adobe Premiere Rush on his iPhone.

A blue moon is the second full moon of a calendar month, and is thus a comparatively rare event. The previous one was in March 2018. Credit: Craig Philpott via Storyful
