Today’s New Year’s Eve blue moon is pretty rare. It occurs every 19 years. I took this photo at 6:12 am over Bridge Square in downtown Northfield but technically, the blue moon won’t appear till this afternoon and should be visible (clear skies predicted) directly overhead at midnight tonight as we ring in the new decade. Watch out, though. LA Times:
Some evidence shows that arrests for petty crime and public drunkenness increase 5% during a full moon, and police expect extra aggressiveness and antisocial behavior from revelers whenever a full moon occurs during a holiday.
