As per NASA, blue supermoons are an exceptionally rare occurrence. NASA notes that these moons typically manifest once every decade owing to specific astronomical circumstances. However, at times, the gap between occurrences of blue supermoons can extend to as much as twenty years. Although blue moons constitute only 3 per cent of all full moons, supermoons make up approximately 25 per cent of the total full moon events.
