Blue Moon over Castle in reflected ultraviolet (UV) photography

Today is a 2nd full moon within the same month, a "Blue Moon", which I have previously shot in reflected ultraviolet photography using my "work horse" UV filter, the Baader-U filter, and then superimposed to a normal night light shot of our castle here. Lens was my CERCO 94mm quartz flourite lens. All shots were done at about f5.6.

Indeed, the moon has UV reflectance and it can be recorded using proper equipment which makes that nicely visible.

I have written about photographing the Moon previously HERE
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
