INFORMATIONS

Wikipedia : The Marcels’ doo-wop version of the song was Billboard Hot 100 number one single April 3, 1961 (three weeks). Rogers reportedly disapproved of this version of the song, but later changed his mind when the recording topped the charts.

Manchester City : The song is the fans’ anthem of English Premier League club Manchester City. (actually, the four first lines only,… the rest of the song being kind of lost !)

NASA : A Blue Moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. Usually months have only one full moon, but occasionally a second one sneaks in. Full moons are separated by 29 days, while most months are 30 or 31 days long; so it is possible to fit two full moons in a single month. This happens every two and a half years, on average.

Oneida Indian Nation : June is the Month of the “Strawberry Moon”. The strawberry has long been a revered gift of the Creator in Oneida and Haudenosaunee culture.

About.com : How does the Dark Moon differ from the New Moon?: The dark of the Moon is the most powerful time psychically. It seems to lure us toward the deepest self, the longings of the soul, and restful listening is a great way to receive these messages.

MadSci Network : Why does the moon look yellow sometimes and white somtimes? At sunrise and sunset the sun goes orange and red. So too with the Moon. It’s still silvery white when it’s high in the sky and dull yellow orange when near the horizon.

ZetaTalk : The Moon is to turn blood-red during a total lunar eclipse [May 4 2004] in UK skies, the Royal Astronomical Society has said. Last night [Oct 30 2003] for the first time here in Moscow I have seen a red Moon with my own eyes. Approaching the horizon, the Moon turned blood-red.
