Greenwich Land Trust holds Blue Moon Hike

The Greenwich Land Trust will hold a Blue Moon Hike on Tuesday, Jan. 30, from 5-6:30 p.m.

On Jan. 31, there will be a lunar eclipse that involves the second full moon of the month, popularly referred to as a Blue Moon. Such a sky watching event hasn’t happened for more than 150 years.
