Blue Moon… No, not the song or the drink.

I love Blue Moon.

 

 

but this post is not about the beer.

In honor of New Years, I would like to educate you a little bit:
Tonight, as you celebrate the end of oh nine, look up for a minute. You will see a Blue Moon! 

“A BLUE MOON!?” You may say… well, not really the color blue (and as I already stated, not the beer either), but a full moon- the second one of the month, in fact (which is super rare and called a blue moon).

An article from the Associated Press explains:

A full moon occurs every 29.5 days, and most years have 12. On average, an extra full moon in a month — a blue moon — occurs every 2.5 years. The last time there was a lunar double take was in May 2007. New Year’s Eve blue moons are rarer, occurring every 19 years. The last time was in 1990; the next one won’t come again until 2028.

Read the full article and educate yourself! It will make a great conversation starter and… who knows! There are probably all sorts of Blue Moon (the beer) specials tonight!

Be Safe and Enjoy your New Year’s Celebrations!

See you Monday, January 4th at 9:15 sharp!

    I love Blue Moon: the beer, the song, and the moon itself. I’ll try to stay awake! Happy New Year Emily!
