Everything You Need To Know About The Full Moon – The Blue Moon

What is a Blue Moon?

In case you are wondering, the Moon on August 30 was blue by name and not by colour. Blue moon normally occurs every two or three years and when two full Moons appear in the same month. Typically there are 12 full Moons each year. The Moon takes 29.5 days to complete a cycle. Since most calendar months last 30 or 31 days, there is usually only one full Moon each month. Sometimes, when a full Moon occurs right at the start of the month, there is just enough time for a second full Moon to happen at the end of the month. The 13th full Moon of the year is known as the Blue Moon.
