“Shall I sing it is enchanted?”
Weather and astronomy folk say that three blue moons are scheduled to occur this year.
A blue moon is the second full moon of a month.
The first blue moon already occurred last January 30, after the full moon of January 1.
The second is about to occur tomorrow night, March 30, after the full moon of March 1.
The third will occur on August 31, after the full moon of August 2.
All in all, there will be three blue moons this year.
This is a rare treat, since a blue moon usually takes place only once every two and a half years.
And this year, we have three. Wow. Not to mention Venus, Mars, Mercury and Saturn, which, according to PAGASA, would be visible around these times, too. Other planets – Uranus, Jupiter and Neptune – will also be visible around 5:30 a.m. tomorrow.
The sky’s putting on a show, so let’s all look up, kiddos!
Yeah, I know it’s a blue moon, but I want to close up with something pink.
