“Magical things happen once upon a blue Moon. And this Thursday we get a chance to find out just what those magical things as we watch the rare lunar event coincide with all the beautiful fireworks of New Year’s Eve.
Blue Moon is the term applied to the second full Moon in a calendar month. It’s an event that occurs roughly every two and a half years. This Thursday’s blue Moon is far rarer than that though, because it’s happening right on New Year’s Eve—a coincidence that happens only about once in every twenty years.
So, between sharing New Year’s kisses this year, take a look at the Moon, because she’ll be at her most beautiful.
PS: No, the Moon doesn’t actually turn blue. It’s just the term used to describe this lunar event.”
Oh yay!! So all those times you have said “once in a blue moon such and such happens” watch out because its all going to happy as we leave 2009!!
