Blue Moon is a phenomenon that occurs when a second full moon happens in one calendar month. Last night, not only was it the blue moon, but it was also a supermoon (or perigee) which occurs when the moon is at its closest approach to the earth. The first full moon in the month of July 2015 was on July 1st. This is a rare occasion. The last blue moon happens in 2012 and the next one will be in 2018. The infrequent nature of this lunar event led to the phrase “once in a blue moon” to signify a rare occurrence. It does not actually mean the moon will be blue. (Telegraph.co.uk)

The moon and sky in the morning, August 1st, 2015, 6.30 am
Patches of white and grey puffy clouds spread all over the blue canvas of sky two mornings ago. From east to west, north to south. On the east, gleams of brilliant warmth reflected on the edge of the altocumulus where the sun tried to peek through. It was one-of-a-kind morning.
