Blue Moon: What is a Blue Moon? Make a WISH TONIGHT!

Tonight is the Blue Moon!

Ahh… once in a blue moon

My sons cannot wait!

My Alexander has been asking me when the Blue Moon was going to happen again for weeks and weeks. He’s obsessed with moons!

So tonight, is the Blue Moon.



If the weather is clear, you will get to see the second full moon of the month — or perhaps the fourth full moon of a three-month season — or maybe an early “betrayer moon” (below in Old English) — or any of half a dozen other definitions that have come up over the last 400 years. At any rate, the full moon of Aug. 31 has been agreed upon, somewhere, as a blue moon, and if you go out after dark, we hope you will enjoy its light. The moon was actually at its fullest at 9:58 a.m. EDT today, which means it was below the horizon for most of the Western Hemisphere. If you saw the moon last night, you probably thought of it as full, and when it rises again tonight, it will still be plenty bright.

I’m SO EXCITED!

It’s supposed to be a gorgeous Full BLUE MOON tonight!

So make a WISH tonight!

And make sure you take a peek!
