Blue Moons

The recent Blue Moons seen splashed across the press and internet seemed to re-light this fascination with all.   I had no idea what its was other than the phrase "once in a blue moon" used to explain an uncommon event. 

Well unsurprisingly this Blue Moon event this July was one of those....well.....once in a blue moon moments.  Until I looked it on the internet I didn't understood what it meant. Two full moons in a month doesn't seem like a big deal, but apparently it is.  Also what about the blue bit?...well from what I understand the moon has on rare events, (like pollution or volcanic eruptions) have caused the moon to appear blue.  But this time we had to settle for yellowy orange colour.
