What's Happening

The Lexis of Luna
Our show celebrates an incredibly rare event that hasn't happened in many years. A "Super Blue Moon Total Eclipse"

We are breaking out some brand new gear for the first time to share live views of Luna in HD giant screen projected images.

More will be happening, too,as the fire barrel will be taking away the chill, and our surround stereo will be playing some soothing sounds of the night.

Why is this show called what it's called?

The Lexis of Lovely Luna is the title of this show because there are so many ways to describe this rare and momentous time for our Lovely Luna. Selene as she is often called, only adds to the names that she can go by on the night of January 31st, 2018. In fact, this is the largest number of appropriate names that have been lined up describing our Moon in over a century.

First, this full Moon will be the second Full Moon falling within the same calendar month which makes her a "Full Blue Moon" on this night. Second, she's a "Super Moon" because she's as close to Earth as she gets in this Luna Cycle which is called Perigee. Next, the season brings the traditional indigenous name and this is the Full Snow Moon. Lastly, and as a real bonus, Luna will be waltzing with the Sun and the Earth as a Total Lunar Eclipse will take place in the late AM night hours of February first!

The Eclipse won't begin until the wee hours, but for the Western United States, this "Super Blue Moon Eclipse" last happened 150 years ago! So, a very rare, once in a lifetime event that makes for an additional reason to call this event the "Lexis of Lovely Luna" as the many ways to describe the Moon includes this rare and eventful arrangement of seldomly assembled words. On top of that, the Blood Moon name will also apply as it is often commonly called a "Blood Moon" when the red tone she turns when totality takes place as the red colors of sunlight from Earth's sunsets and sunrises paints Luna with a glow of crimson that highlights her warmth and charm that will create the peek event of the night!

Indeed, the "Super Blue Moon Eclipse" is rare and to experience it, getting up super early may be best and that's why we will end the star party a bit early.
