Your Question

Q: What is a blue moon? (Samatha from Colorado)

A: When there is a second full moon in the same month, the second full moon is called a blue moon. A full moon is the phase of the moon when it is fully illuminated. On average, it takes the moon 29 days 12 hours 44 minutes to orbit the earth. Therefore, a full moon occurs every 29.53 days. Since the moon's orbit is approximately one month long, it is rare to have a two full moons in the same month. This is why the saying "once in a blue moon" means something hardly ever happens.

However, after futher study, there may be another definition of a blue moon. One report states a blue moon is not the second full moon of a calendar month, but instead it may have a connection with the four seaons of the year.

In any event, did you know the moon is 238,855 miles from Earth and its gravity is one-sixth that of Earth? Did you know the moon was formed over 4.6 billion years ago?
