Do you people know the blue moon has nothing to do with being blue?

Of course we do. I haven't read anyone here stating that "I caught the blue colored Moon!" A blue moon is simply the second full moon to appear within the same month. It occurs once in about every 2.7 years. When we use the title "Blue Moon" it is to designate this second full moon of August.
