True Blue?



Tonight's full moon will be the second full moon of May and, according to folklore, that makes it a Blue Moon.

Blue Moon Over America

OK, it won't really be blue, but it is a relatively rare event.

SkyTonight has the modern definition... What's A Blue Moon?

I prefer the old tv show "Moonlighting" featuring the Blue Moon Investigations team played by Bruce Willis and Cybl Sheppard.

I only celebrate when there's a new moon on Monday. How do I celebrate, you ask? With a firedance through the night, obviously.

Interesting! Thanks for sharing; I didn't know there was one coming up!

Also, it's good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks of the song when I hear "blue moon"!

Heh. I just had a Blue Moon with dinner on the night of a blue moon.

"Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shinin'... Shine one the one who's gone and left me blue."
