Once in a Blue Moon


Blue Moon, August, 2012

Well, “once in a blue moon” is here today. Today is the second full moon in August. It doesn’t happen very often. Many times on a blue moon, you will see it grey and white. Today’s just might be blue due to the forest fires. Historically, there are blue moons after large volcano eruptions.

My first memory of Blue Moon is Frank Sinatra crooning it with style. Today, we will be able to watch the Blue moon from our computers if you wish. In 1945, the term Blue moon appeared in Sky and Telescope magazine.

Historically, there are 3 full moons in any season and each are named. Due to the particles ascending into the atmosphere from our wild fires, some may see a red moon. Whether blue or red, Mother Earth is giving us a beautiful show today and tonight.
