Blue Moon Confusion


“Blue moons” occur when there are two full moons in one month.  This year there seems to be some confusion if the second moon is officially tonight or tomorrow night.  Technically it’s neither.

I called Kevin Williams, Chief Meteorologist of WHEC-TV, our NBC affiliate.  He told me the second full moon will rise at 4:00 AM tomorrow morning.  I didn’t even know the moon rose in the morning.  It doesn’t in my neighborhood but then again, I might not have been paying attention.  Kevin was very nice and didn’t make me feel like a nitwit – much.

BTW – the “blue” moon isn’t really blue.  Any really blue moon pictures you see are fakes.  Actually I’m kind of sorry I brought the whole thing up.
