Today You Can See A Black Moon

Today You Can See A Black Moon

A Black Moon supermoon will occur on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, which begins with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean around 6:00 a.m.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, some people call the second Moon in a single month a Black Moon.

Black moons, which typically take place roughly once every 32 months, are very unusual and sometimes only occur in particular time zones, Space.com noted.

While it has an intriguing name, the unique moon will probably disappoint backyard skygazers. To actually see this black supermoon, however, would require special equipment and significant skywatching experience, but it does offer remarkably dark skies to see other things.

This New Moon will be hard to see with the human eye due to the sun's glare. So you won't even see the moon, because it will blend in with the sky.

The lunar calendar nearly lines up with Earth's calendar year, so there is typically one full moon and one new moon each month.

Tomorrow's black Moon will also be a supermoon, which means the new Moon happens at the closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. So that means there won't be another black moon until April 20, 2022. For the Eastern Hemisphere, it will occur after midnight on August 1, but it is not the second new Moon, so it does not count as a Black Moon. The rest of the world will have to wait until August 30.

Here's where it gets a bit tricky: The black moon has a different schedule in the Western Hemisphere and the Eastern Hemisphere (Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe).

This year, the United Kingdom will also see three super new moons occur on August 1, August 30 and September 28. "The tidal force of the extra-close new moon and the sun team up to usher in extra-large spring tides, where the variation in high and low tide is especially great", EarthSKy explains.

The moon's orbit around the earth is not a ideal circle but more of an elliptical.

Other meanings of a black Moon include a third new Moon in a season of four new Moons; no new Moon in February; and no full Moon in February.
