Dear Friends –
The expression “once in a blue moon” has a long history of being used to describe rare events.
Thought to be called “blue” after an old English term meaning “betrayer,” a Blue Moon is an extra full moon in one month.
July’s second full moon is on Friday July 31, 2015 at exactly 5:43 a.m. CDT.
The full moon appears to last for at least the length of one night, but technically speaking, it is an instantaneous event:
It occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon come into a straight line. It takes place at the same instant everywhere in the world, whether the moon is above or below the horizon. The next “Blue Moon” won’t happen until January 2018, so enjoy!
