Blue Moon -July 31

  After discovering the meaning behind each month's full moon name. I recently came across some more fascinating history on the Blue Moon- which this year will fall on July 31. 

  Blue Moons have a few different meanings. While rarer then the Red Moon, Blue Moon's happen every year.  They are the second of two full moons in a calendar month which happens to fall in July this year, and next year on May 21. 

  An older definition of Blue Moon is that it’s the third of four full moons in a single season. Or if the moon happens to be the color blue (which is super rare).

 

  Another awesome fact, that some years full moon's skip February completely, which makes some months have two blue moons in the year then one. This happen in 1999 and upcoming in 2018.

 

   

  So enjoy the Blue Moon this 31st as it only happens every once in a blue moon ;D
