"Once in a blue moon" was here

Blue moon caught my eyes when skimming through the news at the Himalayantimes online. 31st June was the blue moon day and it is watched and loved by the lovers and is taken as a herald of good time - that was really new for me!

I was wondering if the blue moon was really blue. If it were then there would certainly have been lots of talkings. To my amazement, i didn't hear anything. Searching for blue moon reveals some interesting details and why there's a saying "Once in a blue moon". If there's an extra full moon besides 3, in any quarter of a year, then that extra one is considered the blue moon. That's all and is a part of solar system phenomenon.
