More Blue Moon Information
Part 1 of Blue Moons @ Blue Moon
The concept of the second full moon in the month being the blue moon is actually a very new definition as a result of an older and more obscure practice from the Maine Farmers' Almanac. Due to a misinterpretation in 1946 by an author for Sky and Telescope, the premise that two full moons in the same calendar month evolved and morphed into a trivia question that compounded the mistake in the early 1980s. Link to information about the Blue Moon Mistake
The zodiacal blue moon may be associated with the past practice of Seasonal blue moons implemented by the Maine Farmer's Almanac that dates back to the early 1800s as a way to account for the extra Full Moon within a calendar year. If four Full Moons occurred within a season, then the third Full Moon in that season was deemed to be a blue moon. The only months that a Seasonal blue moon can occur in are February, May, August and November. The Maine Farmer's Almanac made it even more difficult to determine the periods of the seasonal blue moon because they used an obscure method for determining the seasons. Seasonal Blue Moons While the zodiacal blue moons can, conceivably occur in any of the 12 signs, the zodiac blue moons only rarely occur during the time specified for the Seasonal blue moon. See the table below for an example.
