Once in a blue moon -- what was hiding behind the clouds Friday night in Madison

Once in a Blue Moon
The Blue Moon is the name for the second full moon in a calendar month. It happens because the phases of the moon are slightly shorter than a full calendar month, so eventually there's an "extra" full moon, the blue moon. Friday night's cloud cover obscured the real full moon, so here's a fanciful recreation to tide you over until the next Blue Moon in 2015.
