Once in a Blue Moon happens tonight in North Texas. Tonight’s full moon is considered a Blue Moon!
You may say, I thought a blue moon was the second full moon of the same month. You would be correct. But the traditional definition of a Blue Moon is a little more complex.
The original definition of a Blue Moon is the third full moon when there are four full moons in a season. Follow me?
So in a season that has four full moons, the third full moon of that season is named a Blue Moon. This summer we will have four full moons before autumn begins.
The moon, obviously, won’t be blue. But it will be a pretty sight tonight. Moonrise at 7:42pm this evening.
Here are the dates of the full moons this summer.
