Thereis an astronomical phenomenon known as a BlueMoon which happens, you guessed it, only occasionally.And it’s happening this weekend.
Infact, Saturday and Sunday will offer a dual opportunityfor stargazers to get excited because asidefrom the infrequent Blue Moon Saturday eveningthere will also be some high-jinks from Marson Sunday evening.
Marswill be in opposition, meaning the Earth willbe passing directly between Mars and the sun.That could make Mars brighter than any staror planet in the night sky.
Soget your telescopes out.
