Blue Moon To Appear Tonight

Look, up in the sky, it’s a blue moon! And if you can’t see it due to cloudy skies you can watch the lunar event online. The Slooh Space Camera will broadcast the moon starting at 6 p.m. (Friday August 31st) with a feed from the Prescott Observatory in Arizona and an observatory in the Canary Islands.

The broadcast will honor Neil Armstrong, whose funeral is coincidentally the same day, as heard during your information update this morning on Lite 98.7.

Despite its colorful name, there really isn’t anything blue about a blue moon. It simply means it’s the second full moon of the month, so don’t expect to see a different color tonight other than, the normal colors of the moon.

Since full moons occur every 29 days and the last one appeared on August 2, it’s unique to have two of them in the same year and this will be the first blue moon since March 2010, nearly 30 months ago.

The next year of double blue moons is coming up in 2018.
