Blue Moon – You saw me standing alone…

A friend sent me the following:


Something that only occurs once every 19 years will light up the sky Thursday night as we ring in the new year. When you make those New Years resolutions know you will be doing so under a rare Blue Moon.

Blue Moons are actually the 2nd full moon in a month and happen more often that every 19 years. Full moons occur every 29.5 days, and most years have 12. On average, an extra full moon in a month – a Blue Moon – occurs every 2.5 years. The last time there was a lunar double take was in May 2007. It is in fact the New Year’s Eve Blue Moons that are more rare, occuring every 19 years.

Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own,
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for,
You heard me saying a prayer for,
Someone I could care for,
And then there suddenly appeared before me,
Someone my arms could really hold,
I heard you whisper “Darling please adore me,”
And when I looked to the moon it had turned to gold,
Blue moon, now I’m no longer alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own.
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold
Blue moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Additionally the Eastern Hemisphere can celebrate with a partial lunar eclipse on New Year’s eve when part of the moon enters the Earth’s shadow. Unfortunately the eclipse will not be visible in the America’s.

Just thought you might find this as interesting as I do!
