What a combination!
Experience Pink & Blue on the same night….
Jazz in Pink makes a stop in Mid-Michigan on Friday, July 31st.
Many are preparing to catch a glimpse of a Blue Moon on the same night.
According to Wikipedia, when 13 full moons occur in a year, usually one calendar month has 2 full moons. The second full moon is called a blue moon.
A writer for EarthSky Tonight pages [Bruce McClure], reports that a second of two full moons will occur on Friday, July 31, 2015.
Every 19 years, the phases of the moon recur on or near the same calendar dates. This is known as the Metonic cycle.
19 years later, in 2034, we’ll again have another Blue Moon in July, 2034 – and again, 19 years after that: July, 2053.
There are 235 full moons yet only 228 calendar months in the 19-year Metonic cycle. Because the number of full moons outnumber the number of calendar months, that means at least seven of these 228 calendar months must harbor two full moons (235 – 228 = 7 extra full moons).
According to BMRW Promotions, a great show is expected in mid-Michigan with the ladies of Jazz in Pink. Make a memory!
Catch a glimpse!
