Bottom line: Modern folklore has defined two different kinds of Blue Moons. The last Blue Moon – second full moon of a calendar month – came on October 31, 2020. The other sort of Blue Moon – third of four full moons in a single season, with a season being between a solstice and equinox – will come on August 22, 2021.
Orange color due to thickness of Earth's atmosphere near horizon. The orange color of a moon near the horizon is a true physical effect. It stems from the fact that – when you look toward the horizon – you're looking through a greater thickness of Earth's atmosphere than when you gaze up and overhead.

Here are some rare moons to keep an eye out for over the coming months and years.

The moon is fully in Earth's shadow. At the same time, a little bit of light from Earth's sunrises and sunsets (on the disk of the planet) falls on the surface of the moon. Because the light waves are stretched out, they look red. When this red light strikes the moon's surface, it also appears red.
When the moon appears to glow, it's actually bouncing sunlight from the day side of the earth to the night side where you're viewing it. It also reflects light during the day, but the lighter sky and the sun's visibility makes its glow less of a contrast.
When is the next 'Blood Moon' total lunar eclipse 2022? It's on Sunday May 15 and into Monday, 16, 2022, when a 100% reddish “Blood Moon” will be visible in North America for 84 minutes.

A total lunar eclipse can last up to nearly 2 hours, while a total solar eclipse lasts only up to a few minutes at any given place, because the Moon's shadow is smaller.
It's when the shadow of Earth casts a reddish glow on the moon, the result of a rare combination of an eclipse with the closest full moon of the year. There was one in the UK in January 2019, with the next one set to be visible over South America, North America and parts of Europe and Africa on May 16, 2022.
While the Super Pink Moon may have appeared bigger in the sky, its color wasn't any different than usual. Its "pink" moniker recognizes the wild phlox, which is one of the first flowers to bloom in spring. Astronauts at the International Space Station captured some stunning views of the Super Pink Moon from orbit.
The "blue moon" reference is applied to the third full moon in a season with four full moons, thus correcting the timing of the last month of a season that would have otherwise been expected too early. This happens every two to three years (seven times in the Metonic cycle of 19 years).
