Night’s like tonight happen just once in a Blue Moon! Sounds exciting doesn’t it! This New Year’s Eve is going to be extra special because we will be having a Blue Moon in tonight’s sky to help us ring in 2010!
So while you’re out celebrating tonight, look up at the night sky. A Blue Moon on New Years Eve won’t come around again until the year 2028!
The term “blue moon” generally refers to the second full moon in a month and occurs just once every 2.7 years. The last blue moon to shine on New Year’s Eve was 19 years ago, in 1990.
Although the color of the moon won’t truly be a blue color literally, but it will shine brightly and light up the night to add to the excitement!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1…Happy New Year!
“Here’s to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old,
Here’s to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.”
