A Blue Moon occurs when there are two full moons in one month. The second one is the Blue Moon. There is only one full moon this year in August.
A Blue Moon falls on the night of August 20-21, 2013. It’s a Blue Moon by the seasonal definition, that is, the third of four full moons to take place in a season, in this case between the June 2013 solstice and September equinox:)
