The next great time to look for Sea Glass is during the next full moon which happens to be a BLUE MOON – DECEMBER 31, 2009.

In recent times, the Blue Moon has been based on the Gregorian Calendar and has come to be known as a Calendar Blue Moon. Since a Lunar Month averages about 29.5 days, there will occasionally be seasons with 4 Full Moons, creating a calendar month with 2 Full Moons. The 2nd Moon in a month is called a Calendar Blue Moon. These Moons are not as frequent and on average occur every 2.72 years.
The next calendar Blue Moon occurs 12/31/2009 @ 1:13pm CST.

(Due to different time zones, dates and times will vary.)

The Blue Moon (Full Moon) is also known as a Perigean Moon. When the moon is at perigee, closer to the Earth, there is much more gravitational pull and it can whip up the tides and cause weather to become more unstable.

Stay tuned for more information on when and where to look for Sea Glass.
