New Year’s Rockport Eve

For Info on Rockport New Year’s Eve celebration click Motif #1

There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that GMG nor anyone connected with GMG has convinced the sea chantey music group “Three Sheets to the Wind” to sing about a sea captain’s wife complaining of too many sailors brought home by her husband. They will be singing other sea chanteys from 10-10:45 & 11-11:45 PM upstairs at the Rockport firehouse. Then you have 15 minutes to get to the twenty million dollar jewel encrusted ball drop back at Motif #1.

Fun Fact: New Year’s Eve is also the first time in twenty years that a Blue moon occurs on that day. A Blue moon is when there are two full moons in the same month. When this posts at 2PM you only have until 3:03 PM today to go take a photo of that Blue Moon rising. (It sets at 7:07 AM tomorrow in the rain.)

  1. How rare is this occurrence! Just a quick reminder to go outside and check it out if you get a chance.

  2. I was wandering around west of Boston and at 4PM I was wondering if I could see it. Wow, sitting right on top of the Pru!! As this storm moves in the moon is looking big. Just poked my head out at 10 PM and the full moon seems almost straight up. Clouds moving in. Last look at a Blue Moon.
