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 Years 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 Years Eve - a coincidence that happens only about once in every 20 years.
So, between sharing New Years kisses this year, take a look at the moon, because she'll be at her most beautiful. [Homer Tribune]
