I know - I'm really excited to see it! However, sadly it most likely will not actually be blue. Though the moon has appeard blue in the past (1883)
when an Indonesian volcano named Krakatoa exploded - the moon appeared blue and/or green for years. So if that is what it takes - I'll be happy to
see it pearly gray as usual.
However, those in the western US may see a blue moon. Forest fires can make the moon appear blue if the ash or oily-smoke containing lots of 1-micron
particles. And there will be forest fires there on July 31st. However, it is more likely that this will yeild a "red" moon than a blue moon. It
would be very nice if one of our amigos in the west could snap a photo for us if this happens.
