I thought a blue moon was just that...literally a blue moon! A friend sent me this link: CNN| Blue Moon. Turns out a blue moon is a 2nd full moon appearing in the same calendar month!

Enjoy moon-watching!

Something rare, an occasion that is very seldom but does happen. Interesting!

Does it say how it got termed 'blue' moon as opposed to something that would reflect 2 cycles.. ?

According to the article, particles in the sky, such as volcanic dust, can cause the moon to appear blue.

Moons? Is there more than one? ;D The next lunar eclipse is Sept. 28, 2015! I wonder if the moon will appear red.

Greetings,

I heard about this news on the radio tonight. It happened that I was playing a concert with a small jazz band this evening, so we felt obliged to play the jazz standard 'Blue Moon' in honour of this rare occurrence.

Peace

@czgibson Jazz band? Should have seen the connection between the name and avatar... duh!

What type of band? Quartet? Is the avatar a pic of your guitar ?
