NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The phrase “once in a blue moon” holds more meaning Friday as the celestial event appeared early in the morning.

As 1010 WINS’ John Montone reported, while most blue moons aren’t actually blue, they are rare, only showing up every 2 1/2 years.

By definition, a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month.

Montone went moon watching early Friday morning in Times Square and came across Dawson, a hotel manager who said once in a blue moon he gets noticed by his bosses.

“Once in a blue moon…(Montone: You get promoted?) Exactly. (Montone: So maybe today is the day.) Absolutely, I would hope so. Maybe you could talk to them, maybe I’ll post this video and we can have something happen.”

If there’s ever a day to do something you might not normally do, Friday just may be your lucky day.
