TODAY WORLD WHISKEY DAY

World Whisky Day is all about making whisky fun and enjoyable. It’s not about being exclusive or prescriptive. You can drink it however you enjoy it (ice, water, mixer – whatever works for you). We want to be all inclusive and that means any kind of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world.

TODAY IN KIMBERLEY’s SKY

Blue Moon
The Moon will reach full phase. At this time in its monthly cycle of phases, the Moon lies almost directly opposite the Sun in the sky, placing it high above the horizon for much of the night.

The sequence of full moons through the year are often assigned names according to the seasons in which they fall. This month’s is assigned the unusual name of a blue moon.

Blue moons come about as a result of a quirk in the way that full moons are counted. Usually, only three fall within any each of the Earth’s season which last an average of three months. A sequence of three traditional names are given in turn to these three full moons. However, occasionally, a fourth full moon can fall within a single season.

This happens because full moons recur every 29.53 days, and so the Moon’s phases cycle on average 12.37 times each year, or 3.11 times each season. As a result, there will be four full moons within a season once every 2.7 years.

When this happens, there are only three traditional names to go between four full moons, and so the third of them is called a blue moon instead.

Why the third of the four, not the last? The final full moon of winter is traditionally called the lenten moon, since it always falls within the 40 days of Lent. Easter Sunday itself is defined to be the first Sunday after the first full moon of spring, and so must be 29–37 days after this full moon.

This logic would break down if a blue moon were inserted between the lenten moon and Easter, and this is avoided assigning that title to the third (rather than the fourth) of four full moons.

Needless to say, the term blue moon does not refer to any change in the Moon’s color. It’s origin is disputed, but one theory is that it’s a corruption of betrayer moon, for a blue moon in winter leads to Easter being delayed by a lunar cycle.
