July 31, 2015 was the event of a second full moon cycle.. a "Blue Moon", to note its lore.
The average lunar cycle is 29.53 days, so normally only one full moon per month. But if the full moon waxes early in a month, good chance there would be a second full moon, or the "Blue Moon".
The color of the moon is as normally seen, except when certain trace minerals are in the atmosphere. Sometimes, a roseate color. But could also be a pale bluish color. There may not be another "Blue Moon" event until 2018.
