Rare Blue Moon this New Year

Written By David D'Angelo on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 | 12/30/2009

A blue moon and a partial Lunar Eclipse, that is what will be greeting us come New Year's eve. The rare blue moon only comes once every 29 year and the last of it happened in 1990. On the Eastern Hemisphere a partial lunar eclipse will happeb as the Earth's shadow covers the moon.

The blue moon is said to be the second full moon in a month which only happens once every 2.5 years, however a blue moon in a New Year only occurs once every 29.5 years.

The New Year's Eve blue moon will be visible in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America and Africa. For partygoers in Australia and Asia, the full moon does not show up until New Year's Day, making January a blue moon month for them.
