Nature Trivia- A Blue Moon

When there are two full moons in one month, the second is called a 'blue moon.'
This is a very rare occurance. Sometimes the moon has a bluish tint.

That's very interesting tidbit, especially since just earlier this week I read a poem that made mention of a "blue moon", and of course there's the the figure of speech "once in a blue moon", but I'd never actually wondered what it WAS until this week. So, thanks for the answer! Funny, the timing and all. So, no picture of a blue moon? heehehe
