Thornton was treated to a rare New Year’s Eve blue moon and clear weather conditions to allow near perfect viewing of it.  While blue moons are relatively common occuring roughly every 2 1/2 years, they only occur on New Year’s Eve every 19 years. 

The first couple images in the slideshow below are from that night and the others from the night of New Year’s Day.  The other photos were taken the morning of January 2nd as the moon set in the west and then a few pictures of stuff in the backyard are included.

Remember, if you ever capture great images around Thornton, feel free to email them to us ( and we will share them on
