Blue Moon New Years Eve


Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy New Year and a toast in hopes that this special New Years Eve full moon is a sign of better things to come for everyone!

Having nothing to do with color, tomorrow night's Blue Moon is simply the term used when we experience a second full moon in the same month.

The phrase "Once in a Blue Moon" was first noted in 1824 and although considered rare, they usually happen about once every 2 years. As for Blue Moon's in general, and for those that like to plan ahead, the next Blue Moon events are August 2 & August 31 in 2012 and July 2 & July 31, 2015.

A New Years full moon happens about every 19 years, the most recent one happened in 1990 and we won't see the next one until 2028!

That's Right,

HMK
