Tonight there is going to be a special Blue Moon. I do not believe I've ever seen one, but wonder if it is called a Blue Moon because it is a rare happening, being there are two full months this month. Has anyone ever seen a Blue Moon, and is it blue and what is the real reason why they are calling it a Blue Moon? Thank you for answering.

Oh, how cool, dear Sha, that you have addressed the color of blue aspect of my question and have found truly fascinating facts as to why and how the blue may occur! Awesome answer. Thank you!
You're welcome, Faith!
So many have provided further insight, however, being you have provided the facts on when the moon may actually turn blue, I will choose your answer as best. Appreciate you. Hope you are enjoying an awesome weekend.
Awesome. Thanx! It's raining here (again), but having a nice weekend nonetheless. Hope you are too!
You're welcome. It is a beautiful weekend here with less humidity for a change! Blessings
Hi frogyfish, yes, there are some great answers here. Oh, wow, you have come up with additional and interesting information! LOL on the being round and weighs a ton ...Cheers!
HI Elsie, thank you so much for answering. Yes, I think you are right. I think it may be light gray or pale and then sometimes blue, as that photo I have is from wiki ...? I need to go out and look again.
Hi William, yes, that is what I was thinking. I just saw the moon and it is not blue lol. That is so interesting about the calendars! Thank you for sharing those important facts as they are pertinent!
Wow, Paula, thank you so much! No, you did not confuse me at all. I appreciate the in-depth answer and now I get it. I am looking now too, and it is still not quite dark enough. The blue moon song keeps going through my mind. You're awesome!
Hi Anne, I have learned something new in your answer here ...the belewe, and how interesting about the "to betray" ...thanks for the link too. Yes, I've wondered about that saying, once in a blue moon.
Hi Hazel, yes, I did about the rare occurrence of the Blue Moon and then the added information about when it does have a blue hue to it. I know there are many songs about the "Blue Moon" and that common phrase.
We are talking about the rare occasion when two full moons occur in one month, and Sha has shared how sometimes it may appear blue in color. There are many songs written about "Blue Moon".
