Traditionally, the name Blue Moon was given to the third of four full Moons in a single astronomical season (meaning Blue Moons will occur on 21 May 2016, 18 May 2019 and 22 August 2021), but largely due to the US radio program StarDate in early 1980 and the board game Trivial Pursuit, people have come to use the term Blue Moon to mean the second of two full Moons occurring in a single calendar month

Full Moons occur every 29.530589 days, on average, which is the lunar synodic period. Since most months are 30 or 31 days long, it’s clearly possible for two full Moons to fit in a single month if the first occurs near the beginning. Since the first full Moon of July 2015 arrived at 3:20am BST on the 2nd, the second full Moon squeezes in at 11:43am BST on July 31st

Between the years 2001 and 2099, there are 41 Blue Moons. There are three years in which a Blue Moon occurs twice: 2018 (January and March), 2037 (January and March) and 2094 (January and April). Blue Moons can also occur on consecutive years: 2066 and 2067.

Can you see the moon between the trees as it goes down into the water?
