While there is a lot of hype going on in the human species about various issues, we have also got something new from the Moon. This Friday, i.e., 31st of July, 2015, get to the roof of your House and see the spectacular view of “The Blue Moon” which happens every 2-3 years.
Blue moon doesn’t mean that the Moon is Blue.
In recent times, people have been using the name Blue Moon for the second of two full moons in a single calendar month. An older definition of Blue Moon is that it’s the third of four full moons in a single season.
It is also used as a daily expression to state that something happens very rarely or doesn’t happens.
Can moon be blue in colour: There’s one kind of blue moon that is still rare. It’s very rare that you would see a blue-colored moon, although unusual sky conditions – certain-sized particles of dust or smoke – can create them.
So, don’t be misled that moon will be blue on the ‘Blue Moon Day’.
The last Blue Moon which happened is on August 31st, 2012.
So, people, fasten your seatbelts and get ready to watch for this Natural Wonder!
