“Once in a Blue Moon,” you say?
They’re actually not all that rare—once every two or three years. Most people define a Blue Moon as the second full moon in a calendar month. The Farmer’s Almanac gets more technical, stating that it’s the fourth full moon in an astronomical season, as opposed to the usual three.
Sinatra’s centennial is a one-time-only afffair, which is why the Hoboken Historical Museum (1301 Hudson St.) is hosting an in-depth exhibit called Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice, and the Fans—set to open THIS SUNDAY.
From the Museum’s website:
Honoring the 100th anniversary of the birth of Hoboken’s most famous native son, the exhibition, “Frank Sinatra: The Man, the Voice, and the Fans,” will open on Sunday, Aug. 2, with a free opening reception from 2 – 5 p.m. The exhibit will feature interactive displays and videos, period-appropriate listening stations, and cherished fan photographs and artifacts to illustrate the singer/actor’s formative years in Hoboken, highlights from his remarkable 60-year career, and memories from legions of fans. The exhibit will be accompanied by packed schedule of singers, films and authors, and a big birthday bash on Dec. 12, 2015.
