once in a blue moon

The modern day definition of a blue moon is when there are two full moons in one month, the next one occurring in July 2015. However, traditionally a blue moon is when there are four full moons in a season rather than the usual three (or when there are 13 in a year), making tonights full moon a blue moon. Many cultures named the full moons each month to reflect the times for planting, harvesting or seasonal conditions, when there was an extra full moon in a season it was referred to as a blue moon.

Regardless of what definition we may use, I made this ring as a reminder that what sometimes seems impossible, can actually happen.
