You likely have heard of the term, “once in a blue moon”. That term refers to something that doesn’t happen very often. The term originated from astronomy when you have the second full moon in a calendar month. Typically you only have one full moon during a single calendar month. Though sometimes February won’t have 2 full moons because it’s so short. This month is the rare month that we have 2 full moons in the same calendar month. We had a full moon back on August 1st and now we will have a 2nd on August 31st.

Like last years supermoon on March 19th which was a big hit among sky watchers. This Saturday there will be an equally amazing sight as the biggest full moon of the year will occurred at 11:35 EDT. Another rare treat will occur Friday night as the annual Eta Aquarid meteor showers will be peaking. Though the supermoon will far out shine the meteor shower.
