What exactly does "once in a blue moon" mean? Did you know we're going to experience one tonight? According to our friends over at Wikipedia, "the term has traditionally referred to an 'extra' moon, where a year which normally has 12 moons has 13 instead. The 'blue moon' reference is applied to the third moon in a season with four moons, thus correcting the timing of the last month of a season that would have otherwise been expected too early. This happens every two to three years."
Pretty interesting, huh?
