Miami Gets Mooned This New Year's Eve

The next full moon on New Year's Eve won't be for another 18 years

When you're looking at the fireworks exploding in the sky at midnight, you might want to pay attention to the bright, full moon expected to be hovering in the sky.

Blue Moon

Miamians will get a chance to witness a blue moon tonight, marking the first time in 20 years that a full moon has occurred on New Year's Eve. We guess it's a good thing NASA hasn't blown it up yet after all.

Tonight is considered a blue moon because it is the second full moon this month, another pretty rare occurrence.

That doesn't mean you should run out and start howling at the sky or turn into a hairy, teenaged heart throb. A simple toast to the heavens will do to commemorate the occasion.

The moon won't actually be the color blue, unless you are looking through a glass filled with Hypnotiq liquor, which means about half of you will see a blue moon.

The next full moon on New Year's is projected for 2028 so you might want to take advantage of the heavenly scene while toasting tonight.
