This Friday, July 31, 2015, Jackson 20 will host a “Once in a Blue Moon(Shine)” party along with a special menu. Moonshine will be flowing all night long. There will also be late night cheeseburgers from 11:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. Live music will start at 6:00 p.m. Reservations are recommended.
Jackson 20 is listed in Old Town’s most extensive Eats & Drinks list.
The rare blue moon will not happen again until 2018. The July 31 appearance of the month’s second full moon will be the first since August 2012. Every month has a full moon. However, because the lunar cycle and the calendar year aren’t perfectly synched we wind up with two full moons in the same calendar month.
A Moon that actually looks blue is a very rare sight. Any phase of the Moon can appear blue when the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size. Volcanic eruptions like on Mt. Krakatoa, Indonesia (1883), El Chichon, Mexico (1983), Mt. St. Helens (1980) and Mount Pinatubo (1991) are all known to have caused blue moons.
Even though we may not actually see a blue colored moon, Jackson 20’s “Once in a Blue Moon Party” should provide for an interesting evening.
