Redefining the phrase Blue Moon.

This beautiful sight can only be seen every 33 months and that just so happens to be land on this year on new years at 5:13 Central Time on December-31-2009 we will all see something like this.
And i hoped you enjoyed it. Mostly because it took a lot to find this first I had seen it somewhere when I was skimming through this book that I have. So I put it in google and it said that it would be seen at 19:13 GMT. So I thought then I asked my mom and Josh and Josh said that 19:13 was army time and that it stood for 7:13 but he didn't know what GMT stood for so I went onto this one website and found what it meant.It meant Greenwich mean time I told josh and he told me to get on this other website. So I did and I found out that it was 2 hours and 30 minutes ahead of us so I subtracted 2:30 from 7:13 and got 4:73 and I knew that couldn't be right so I told Josh and he said that it is 5:13.And that wraps up my whole thing. So I went through a lot just to see this.

I would really hate for you to miss it after you went through all that so you need to know that Greenwich Mean Time or GMT is four hours ahead of me so it is 5 hours ahead of you. Here is a website that shows you the clock for current GMT. Great job on this post I will have to try and remember to watch for the Blue Moon!

Actually no you were not all messed up. The simple fact that you did all that research is something to be proud of. Anytime you get into research it is easy to become misguided by information posted online. The only reason I even looked for the clock to help is, I have always been fascinated by astronomy and wanted to see this event too. When I saw that the time was different, I wanted you to know too so you don't miss it either. I am looking forward to it so you and I can compare how it looks from New York and Nebraska. If you find out anymore, let me know please....
