Our second full moon of August is upon us!  Take a minute to take in the beauty of the "Blue Moon".

The folklore surrounding the blue moon has been around as long as we've been keeping calendars!

August 2012 is a month with two full moons. And, by popular acclaim, that means it’s a Blue Moon month – but it’s Blue in name only. That’s because a Blue Moon is sometimes defined as the second full moon in a calendar month. The first full moon is August 1. The second full moon is August 31, 2012.

You won't have another chance like this until August, 2015!
