A blue moon will fascinate sky watchers this Friday, August 31. I love a full moon, and this moon will be the third moon in the month.
According to Fox News, "This week's blue moon will be the last one visible until July 2015, Slooh officials said. Interestingly enough, the term "blue moon" does not refer to the moon's color, but rather has to do with it being the second of two full moons within the same calendar month."
I will go out in my yard this Friday and enjoy the Blue Moon as we will not have one again until 2015. It is a hobby of mine and my son's. He has a large telescope, and I remember the first time he brought it over. He showed me the rings of Saturn, and since then I have been fascinated with sky watching.
So if interested, be sure to look up because we won't have another blue moon for three years.
