red moonI believe this name is one of the names given to a full moon in August. Each full moon has a special name given to it depending on what month it's present. For example, the September moon is also known as the Harvest Moon. Furthermore, a blue moon is actually the third out of four moons in a season, instead of the second full moon in a calendar month. The definition of "Blue Moon" was made incorrect back in the 40s by a newspaper article and wasn't corrected until 1999 so it is understandable why some still believe it to be the second full moon in a calendar month. Hope this helps.
