A Blue Moon New Year !

Hookayyzz! Before I get all exciting and start babbling about my life and game. I got something for you, for all of you that like me and think "Wth is that!?!" whenever you hear the phrase "Once every blue moon." According to wikipedia, a blue moon is " a full moon that is not timed to the regular monthly pattern. Most years have twelve full moons which occur approximately monthly, but in addition to those twelve full lunar cycles, each solar calendar year contains an excess of roughly eleven days compared to the lunar year. The extra days accumulate, so that every two or three years (on average about every 2.7154 years[1]), there is an extra full moon. The extra moon is called a 'blue moon'."

The blue moon will happen this year on New Year Eve, that's on Dec 31st. So in addition of firework, you will have a chance to watch the moon go "blue" as well. So for once, don't go to bed early ;D (*cough* pit.. *cough*...). But don't worry too much even if you miss it, it's going to happen again in about 3 years from now, or August 2012 to be exact. You will see it then, unless we are doom as soon as 2012 come around like 'somebody' have been know....*ehem*

And I can't help but steal this picture from Geekologie and put it here. Sorri xD!

Happy Mooning!!

Just to make sure, the blue moon isn't blue, it just the second full moon of the month. The moon only visibly blue if there's something on the air, like some short of smoke, from a fire or from some fog effect.
