Here in Israel we saw a partial lunar eclipse tonight!
Once in a blue moon, as the saying goes, there are two full moons in the same calendar month. That happens every two and a half years.
A blue moon on New Year's Eve is much rarer. It last happened in 1990.
But even more rare is the partial lunar eclipse that accompanies a blue moon, like tonight.
It was a beautiful scene, a wondrous way to welcome a new civil year.
Happy new year to all the friends at SkyWatch and all the friends around the world.
