Full Moon Lunatics In Piedmont Park says
The next full moon is this Friday, July 31st.
It's a Blue Moon, as third full moon of four in a season. The Maine Farmer’s Almanac defined a Blue Moon as an extra full moon that occurred in a season. One season – winter, spring, fall, summer – typically has three full moons. If a season has four full moons, then the third full moon may be called a Blue Moon.
There was a Blue Moon by this definition happened on November 21, 2010. Another occurred on August 20-21, 2013. And the next one will occur on May 21, 2016.
Which Blue Moon definition is better? In recent years, a controversy has raged – mainly among purists – about which Blue Moon definition is better. The idea of a Blue Moon as the third of four in a season may be older than the idea of a Blue Moon as the second full moon in a month. Is it better? Is one definition right and the other wrong?
Opinions vary, but, remember, this is folklore. So we, the folk, get to decide. In the 21st century, both sorts of full moons have been called Blue.
As the folklorist Phillip Hiscock wrote in his comprehensive article Folklore of the Blue Moon:
Old folklore it is not, but real folklore it is.
We're predicted to have a 60 percent chance of rain, with a low around 71, after a high of 91. Sunset is at 8:39 pm and moonrise is at 8:46 pm. The moon will be full at 1:27 a.m. that morning.

The Lunatics will gather to catch the sunset and moonrise, beginning about 7 pm. Some may come earlier, too, especially if it’s pretty weather.
We Lunatics meet on Oak Hill in Piedmont Park. It's just inside the park off 10th Street, across from where Taft intersects 10th Street.

Bring a chair and/or a blanket, something to eat, something to drink, someone, and something to share, if you like. Come spend time with wonderful friends, old and new, enjoying nature and the urban life. Some hardy souls may stay until 11 during the summer, but only ‘til maybe 9 when it’s cold.

Love and hugs!
