ONEIDA, Tenn. (AP) - A blue moon comes along every, well, once in a blue moon, and Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is celebrating the one happening later this month.

The second full moon in a calendar month is sometimes referred to as a “blue moon.” The first full moon this month was July 1, and the second is July 31.

Park rangers and Paul Lewis from the University of Tennessee Department of Physics and Astronomy will lead an exploration of the unique features of the full moon during a program at 8 p.m. EDT July 31 at the Bandy Creek Visitor Center. The park is located on the Kentucky-Tennessee border.

Bring a blanket or chair for comfortable seating and a flashlight.
