There is a 'Blue Moon' occuring on the 20th of August. A 'Blue Moon' does not necessarily mean that the Moon will appear to be the color blue.

Instead, this term usually refers to the second full moon occuring within the same month. In this case, though, a Blue Moon is the third Full Moon in a four Moon season. Since tonight's Full Moon is the third of four this season, it is considered a Blue Moon by this standard.
