When you look up to the skies Tuesday and Wednesday nights, if the skies are clear, you will be looking at a rare, lovely sight -- a blue moon. The nights of Aug. 20- 21 will be a blue moon. Mostly known as the second (or third) full moon in a calendar ..

Well, the moon isn't blue outside my window, but then we don't have the expression "blue moon" here ;-)
We do say 'on a blue Monday' which means "of little significance" or "a short while". However some see a link with "once in a blue moon"

Saw it, and photographed it, before I knew of its significance.

And today, Thursday, is the birthday of Claude Debussy, whom Google has honored with an animated, musical doodle based on - what elde - "Claire de Lune." So that moon is extending into an extra day courtesy of music.
