If two Full Moons occur within the same monthsomething which only happens about once every two-and-a-half yearswe call the second Full Moon a "Blue Moon."
But this year, we not only have a "Blue Moon" in January (Full Moon on both the 1st and 31st)...
...but again only two months later in March (Full Moon on both the 1st and 31st)! This even rarer event occurs only every 20-40 years, and always when February contains no Full Moons.
