Title: Weather Diary 13 August 1831
Concept: Once in a Blue Moon.
Detail: The expression "once in a blue moon" should not be taken to signify an event which can not happen - because a blue moon, (and sun!) is an event which has indeed been observed. In 1831 through out the southern U.S. a distinct blue tinge of the sun and the moon was observed for several days. It was thought by some people to be a bad omen, inasmuch as it presaged the slave uprising led by Nat Turner. How ever the origins of the blue color are less dramatic, caused by the minute particles in the atmosphere, presumably the result of forest fires or volcanic eruptions. Certain sized particles scatter light in such a way that the direct beam of both the sun and the moon are made to appear blue. The second use of the term blue moon comes from astronomy - referring to the second full moon in a Calendar month.
