The Last Blue Moon | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We have been blessed with some interesting Full Moons as of late, including a Full ‘Blue/Blood Moon’ (Eclipse) in January! Followed by a February with NO Full Moon! Tonight (Saturday, March 31st.)  is the second Full moon of March aka: a blue moon & within 60 days of the January Blue/Blood Moon! Rare indeed…

Back in January we had the first Blue/Blood Moon since 1866. It won’t happen again in our lifetime…

Tonight’s Blue Moon is the last one of 2018! In fact the Almanac says we wont’ have another Blue Moon until 2020! On Halloween night to be exact… Spooky :0

  • Tonight’s Full Moon is also a “Paschal Moon” – The first Full Moon after the Spring Equinox – the following Sunday is Easter (tomorrow – April 1st.)!
  • If you practice Moon Phase Gardening this is a good day to plant potatoes and carrots and to transplant perennials 🙂

    Get out tonight and walk through the garden. Strolling through a garden at night by the light of the full moon is an AWESOME experience. And if you miss this one, you won’ get another chance until Halloween 2020! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I’m going to enjoy the Full Moon tonight and the Sunrise in the morning!

Have a great evening!

Super, Blue, Blood Moon was a rare thing indeed | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This mornings Super Moon was rare! It was not only a “Super Moon” (at perigee/closest to earth), it was a Blue Moon (2nd. Full Moon in the same month) & It was a Blood Moon (Lunar eclipse). So adding all this up together, it was a VERY rare thing to see! To put it into understandable numbers – This hasn’t happened since 1866! That was right after the Civil War! WOW!

This is the first Blue/Blood Moon since 1866. It won’t happen again in our lifetime.

This combo of Super Blue/Blood Moon wont happen again in our lifetime… Pretty cool if you ask me 🙂 Did you see it? Also interesting is the fact that February won’t have a Full Moon at all this year… Next Full Moon is the Full Worm Moon, Thursday March 1st.

Have a GREAT Day!

Don’t forget – Spring is Coming!
