Blue Moon Coming This August

Full Moon rises over White Rock Shoal, Huron County, Michigan
August 1, 2012

We are enjoying a big full moon over Lake Huron this week and there will be another full moon at the end of August. That second full moon within one month is called a blue moon, according to folklore, and is an occasional occurrence.

So, here's your early warning to mark your calendar for a second August full moon, the blue moon, on Friday, August 31. That's the start of Labor Day weekend and is also the first home football game for Michigan State. We play Boise State that night and it will be stunning to see the full moon in Spartan Stadium. Very cool.
