Jack Horkheimer: Star Gazer will be going into it's fifth decade on the air since debuting in the '70s. That's quite a feat for any TV show, but the new year might be extra special for the locally produced TV show which airs on public television stations internationally hosted by Horkheimer, the director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium at the Miami Science Museum.
That's because the New Year's Eve will host a blue moon. Most years only see twelve full moons a year, but occasionally a calendar year will be filled with 13. It happens about every 2.5 years. A blue moon on New Year's Eve occurs once every 19 years, but we'll let Horkheimer explain it.
