Ghana experiences blue moon in 2009

Ghana was one of the countries to have experienced the blue moon that saw off the year 2009 on the night of December 31.

Popular definition says a blue moon is the second full moon in one month. It is not blue as the name has nothing to do with colour, but the saying “once in a blue moon.”

Other parts of the world expected to see the blue moon are the United States, Canada, Europe, South America and other parts of Africa. Australia and Asia, will however experience the full moon on New Year’s Day.
