    What are the odds of a blue moon on New Year’s Eve? The last one was in 1990, but the next on isn’t until after 2050…Blue moon occurs every 33 months.

    Anyone able to calculate it?

    I believe there is also supposed to be a partial lunar eclipse tonight as well. Blue moon, eclipse, New Years…good luck trying to calculate those odds!
