When it turned Midnight the firworks started going off everywhere. I'm outside of Tulsa, and the sky is beautiful with stars and the first "Blue Moon" of the year. I don't get to see the stars or the moon living so close to the city lights of Houston. The ground is still covered with ice and snow, and it's in the teens, but a great way to start the New Year, with a roaring fireplace and family, some late night snacks and a great movie! Nothing wrong with that!
Fairly rare, the last one was in 1990.
The Farmers' Almanac defined blue moon as an extra full moon that occurred in a season; one season was normally three full moons. If a season had four full moons, then the third full moon was named a blue moon.
It doesn't actually have anything to do with color at all.
