Blue Moon

A lot of people think if you get two full moons in one month, the second full moon is called the “blue moon.” Not sure why they call it blue. Anyway, tonight, we have the second full moon this December.

However, the definition of blue moon isn’t that simple. The real definition is  explained today by Tim Johnson in the Burlington Free Press.  It’s complicated but interesting,  so read the article.

The video quality is a bit poor, but this is still fun to watch:
