Today is special day. You will see a blue moon at night - a rare cosmic and astronomical experience. Well actually, the color of the moon will not be blue. The moon would look pretty much the same as it usually does. When two full moons occur in a month, the second one is referred to as a 'Blue Moon!'.The first full moon was on August 2, and second full moon of the month will be seen this evening - August 31. Usually a full moon occurs every 29.5 days and so we have only one full moon every month.  When people say "once in a blue moon" they are speaking of  the rarity of an event. Don't miss the blue moon today, as the next one will only occur on July 31, 2015. Take a photo and share it with your friends, in celebration of the Blue Moon day.

On the superstitious front, it's believed that the full moon's energy has special powers, and one could wish for their dreams and aspirations to come true.
