Christine Russell from the Atlantic talks about the Blue Moon tonight and tonight only…read it here.

Excerpt: “As you ring in the New Year, take your glass of champagne and toast the blue moon in the sky above. It’s a once in a generation thing, a rare astronomical happening that reminds us that while life is highly unpredictable, the heavens are not.

Tonight’s New Year’s Eve blue moon is the first since 1990. Another won’t roll around for another 19 years.  So the time to celebrate is now. I’ll walk outside tonight as the clock strikes twelve, bundled up and looking for a blue moon shining over the snowy mountain peaks of Aspen, CO. The blue moon is expected to be visible to New Year’s Eve celebrants across the U.S., Canada, Europe, South America and Africa, according to the AP’s Alicia Chang. And in New York City, the full moon will be competing with the glittery ball dropping in Times Square (maybe the cameras can capture both).”

So toast your local moon and kiss 09 and the early 2000’s adios.
