Ever wonder where “Once In a Blue Moon” came from? The catch phrase that is used so frequently in every day life, in songs, in movies is actually a rare sight. But is it actually blue? The experts think not . You see, way back in 1883 there was a volcano that erupted. The ash that was spewed into the air turned the moon blue (not the actual moon mind you, but the way it looked from our point of view on Earth.)
Whether it’s actually blue or not, it is a rare occurrence. So be sure to look to the sky tonight, whether your in Cranston, Westerly or Woonsocket, because it will be a while before we see one again.
