A  Blue moon is reflected off a Glastonbury flood as the  clouds from the summer storm that caused it recede, the glint of the moon on water has attracted a Magpie that will have nothing to take.  What is a Blue moon? It certainly isn't blue, it's just a second full moon within one calendar month, or  to some it's still the third full moon in a season with four of them.  This happens every two or three years and the term 'once in a blue moon' has come to mean something that happens rarely. This painting really was completed on a blue moon, on 31st August 2012, I thought the chance to do that would be  a nice touch!

 

The Blue Moon

A  Blue moon is reflected off a Glastonbury flood as the  clouds from the summer storm that caused it recede from over the Isle of Avalon, the glint of the moon on the water of a flooded field has attracted a Magpie that will have nothing to take, the silver moonlight cannot be stolen!   What is a Blue moon?  It certainly isn't blue, it's just a second full moon within one calendar month, or  to some it's still the third full moon in a season with four of them.  This happens every two or three years and the term 'once in a blue moon' has come to mean something that happens rarely. This painting really was completed on a blue moon, on 31st August 2012, I thought the chance to do that would be  a nice touch.

Has there ever been a month with no full moon? Yes, it happens occasionally in the short month of February, Here are the months between1934 and 2094 that  did or will occur without a full moon: 1934, 1961, 1999, 2018, 2037, 2067, 2094.  The last Blue moon was by the seasonal definition and  fell on 20-21st August 2013. When is the next blue moon? The next Blue moon will be on July 31st 2015
