Goat Gives the Moon a Head Butt!

   Thursday evening July 30th the full Moon rises at approximately local time for sunset. For my location that is at 8:30 pm CDT. The Moon is located at the horns of the Sea Goat Capricornus as if the Moon were getting a head butt.
   Since this is the second full Moon of the month this full Moon qualifies as a ‘Blue Moon’. The Moon does not really turn blue so the term Blue Moon is thought to perhaps mean something that rarely happens – once in a blue moon.
