Most months only have one. But in cycles of 19 years, or 228 calendar months, seven to eight calendar months will always have two full moons. In other words, there&rsquo;s a month with two full moons every two to three years. When it happens, the second one is popularly called a Blue Moon. The Blue Moon for 2012 will fall on August 31.</p> Wed, 01 Aug 2012 12:17:16 +0000 David Latulippe 14370 at http://kalw.org August 1, 2012 July 31, 2012 http://kalw.org/post/july-31-2012 <p>213th day of 2012, 153 remaining</p><p>Sunrise: 6:13am<br />Sunset: 8:19m</p><p>93% of the moon is visible, setting at 4:41am, rising at 7:12pm</p><p>Low Tides at the Golden Gate: 4:47am/4:35pm<br />High Tides: 11:56am/10:50pm</p><p><strong><em>Today&#39;s special celebrations:</em></strong></p><p>Festival of San Ignacio - Peru<br />Upswing of the Revolution - Republic of Congo<br />La Hae Hawai`i (Flag Day) - Hawaii, US<br />Imbolc / Oimelc / Brigid (Southern Hemisphere) - Paganism<br />Lunasa or Lammas (Northern Hemisphere) - Paganism</p><p>St. Neot&#39;s Day (patron of fish)</p> Tue, 31 Jul 2012 12:11:12 +0000 David Latulippe 14313 at http://kalw.org July 31, 2012
