Was there a blue moon in 1975?

Yes, there was a seasonal blue moon on August 21, 1975, as Summer had four full moons. As the third full moon of the season, the August 21st full moon was considered a seasonal blue moon.

There are two definitions of blue moons. The most common, and the one you likely know, is when two full moons occur in the same month. The second full moon is typically called a blue moon.

The second definition of a blue moon relates to having an extra full moon during a season. When a season has four full moons, the third full moon of the season is also called a blue moon or a seasonal blue moon to help distinguish between the other definition.
