The BLUE MOON will be 100% full December 31, 2009 at 11:14 A.M. Las Vegas time.

The following article is from Universe Today, by Fraser Cain

A lunar month takes 29.53 days. This is the amount of time it takes for the Moon to complete a cycle through all the phases, from new moon to full moon and then back to new moon again. This is very close to the length of a month in the Western calendar, which usually have 30 or 31 days. Every month usually has one of each of the phases. So a typical month will have a new moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter moon. But every now and then, a month will have two of the same phases. When a month has two full moons, the second one is called a “blue moon” read more…

“American Indians gave names to each of the full moons to keep track of the passing year. The names are associated with the entire month until the next full moon occurs. Since a lunar month averages 29 days, the dates of the moons change from year to year.”

The full moon on December 2, 2009 was called one or more of the following: Full Cold Moon, Snow Moon or Moon When The Wolves Run Together. Since December has two full moons the second moon (December 31) is called (American/Anglo) The Blue Moon.


“Elvis [Presley] recorded [the song] Blue Moon at Sun Records on July 6, 1954, according to tcbeus.”

“Blue Moon” is a classic popular song. It was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, and has become a standard ballad” read more from Wiki…

From Linda Moffitt, Examiner.Com:
The Blue Moon Superstition and Other Moon Names

Full Moons bring up thoughts about the crime rate going up, more babies being born, average people turning into werewolves. Every twenty-eight days the full moon rises to illuminate the skies this equals twelve moons a year, but what happens when there is a thirteenth moon, the Blue Moon?

Every few years the thirteen moon rises. In the twentieth century, there were only forty blue moons. Since the moon is so rare it is believed, the moon holds mystical powers. If you make plans under the Blue Moon, they will come true. However, be careful the moons powers are unpredictable and you may get your wish but it may be more than you want. December 31, 2009 is the next Blue Moon.

Native Americans started calling the moon names each month to keep track of the seasons. The Farmer’s Almanac names the twelve moons as follows read more…

The countdown is over.

For months, MGM Mirage, the managing partner of the $8.5 billion CityCenter, has tantalized the public with a reminder of how many days it would be before Aria, the centerpiece of the development, would be “revealed to the world.”

Today, the wait wound down to the final 24 hours, 3½ years after the implosion of the Boardwalk hotel that once occupied a portion of the Strip frontage and five years after planning began.

Aria was busy Tuesday with last-minute touch-up work throughout the building while journalists and VIPs took guided tours showcasing room technology, CityCenter’s public art and water features and its signature entertainment offering, Cirque du Soleil’s “Viva Elvis.”

On Wednesday, activity was even more brisk and the company was graced with a warm, sunny day for the final push before the opening.
