Black Moon is Near


On the final day of September a rare lunar event that hasn't happened in over two years, will; a black moon. There was first a supermoon, blood moon, and now a black moon. Friday night is when this phenomenon will happen. You might stare at the sky for hours and never see it. Since the moon will be black and the sky will also be the same color it’s almost invisible.

"The black moon is a somewhat unusual celestial event — they occur about once every 32 months," said Joe Rao of Space.com.The last black moon was in March 2014, according to AccuWeather.

Friday night you will be able to enjoy the night sky without the glare of the moon. “The new moon officially occurs at 8:11 p.m. EDT (5:11 p.m. PDT) on Friday. But it will take a few more nights before you'll start to see the moon as a silver sliver when the crescent moon increases in size, ScienceAlert reports.”

Not everyone was taking it all in stride. England's Express newspaper said that Friday's Black Moon could "bring with it worldwide destruction and the second coming of Jesus Christ."On the final day of September a rare lunar event that hasn't happened in over two years, will; a black moon.
