Blue Moon at New Year’s Eve


A blue moon is on its way according to the scientists:

Astronomer David Reneke from Australasian Science magazine said it was rare for the event to happen on New Year’s Eve – another blue moon will not fall on the last day of the year until 2028.  The event has an added significance – it comes just months after the world celebrated the 40th anniversary of man landing on the moon in July.

Signs and wonders, people, signs and wonders.  What does that augur for 2010?  It seems the Americans will get it too.

    Do you have any predictions?

    Not based on the moon but on ecopundits like Karl Denninger, Sackerson and Jeff Taylor.

    It seems to me, Cherie, that an awful lot of lies are being told. This has prompted a newspaper downunder to post this.

    Well, that’s interesting. I wonder if I’ll live to see the next one.

    I believe there is a “Blue Moon” about every two and a half years on average. Not much to get excited about at all.

    However, more impressive is the fact that we also have a partial eclipse of the moon tonight, New Year’s Eve, accompanying the Blue Moon. I have just been enjoying the sight of the shadow of the Earth’s curve across the full moon.

    Oh yes, that’s impressive – is it over yet?

    Another blog friend did alert me to that partial eclipse but unfortunately I wasn’t able to see it… Another opportunity missed!!!
