There's a blue moon out tonight, so anybody waiting for that certain thing to happen again now is the time.

Killer song by Joe Satriani :D


When the night falls, the big moon's gonna rise.
You can look right up, see it in the sky.
Makes me feel like I'm going to blow a fuse.
I start to shiver and shake with a strange kind of blues.

...but I like it.

I see it now the moon is high above.
It's got a hold on me, I just can't get enough.
Big, round, black and white, I feel the pull, I see the light.
Big bad moon's looking down on me tonight.

...but I like it.

When the moon comes, got nowhere to hide.
It can turn your head around like it turns the tide.
Man, woman, boy, child. makes you feel like you were born wild.
The big bad moon's looking down on me tonight.

...but I like it.
...i like it.

talkin' 'bout big bad moon
ooh yeah big bad moon
talkin' 'bout big bad moon
ooh yeah...

Don't we usually get one blue moon each year? I see in today's paper that the next blue moon is two years from this month.

I learned something today. :D The name isn't because of a blue hue of the moon, but because waaaaaay back in the day of early English - sometime in the 1500's -they referred to that moon as "belewe" ... meaning "betrayal" or "to betray". I suppose that since the moon was not behaving normally (by being full again sooner than usual), it could be a "betrayal" of normalcy.

I've got a few cells left to kill after all! :funny: :what:

No SMITTY, it comes from the word “blew” because the wind blew the moon in for the second time this month.

OK, I made that up :P

Last night the grandson was telling us about the blue moon and what his teacher said and things didn’t add up so I googled it and here you have it right from Wikipedia (so you know it has to be true ;) )
Blue moon is the appearance of the third full moon in a season with four full moons. It is never really blue. The term has also been used to refer to the second full moon in a month. The average lunar cycle is 29.530589 days, there are 365 days in a solar year, 365 divided by 29.530589 days equals about 12.36 lunar cycles in a solar year. In the gregorian calendric cycle, there are 12 months (the word month is derived from moon). In addition to those twelve months representing full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains roughly eleven days more than the lunar year of 12 lunations. The extra days accumulate, so every two or three years (7 times in the 19-year Metonic cycle), there is an extra full moon.

I now know more about blue moons than I wanted to know, have to know, or need to know.
