Blue Moon To Light Up The Sky For Easter

Theres Going to Be a Blue Moon Tomorrow

The moon might not appear blue at all and just be like any other ordinary full moon. The Blue Moon on March 31 will be the second Blue Moon of 2018 and the last one until October 31, 2020.

Ironically, blue moons aren't actually blue and they aren't rare.

Whenever there's a 2nd moon in a solitary month, it's usually described as a blue moon. This happens when a particular year has 13 full moons instead of the usual 12.

The moon was expected to appear at its fullest at around 1.37am GMT on Saturday, March 31.

A blue moon is not as rare as the expression "once in a blue moon" implies.

Native Americans knew the fourth full moon of the year as the Sap Moon, the time of year when the sap was flowering in the trees. Well, two Blue Moons in one year seem to belie this idea!

A Blue Moon has already made headlines this week when the sudsy brew's creator pitched a line of marijuana infused beverages.

Don't miss it! The next blue moon won't come around again until spring 2019. Consequently, both January and March ended up with two full moons, something that only tends to happen every 19 years or so. Firstly, it is the last blue moon until Halloween 2020. A large volcanic eruption (ash), or even wildfires (smoke, dust), can cause a reaction in the atmosphere that creates a bluish tinge. Since it takes about 29.5 days for the moon to complete its cycle (an interval known as a "synodic" month), this year the entire month of February passed in between full moons. "Squeezing a second full moon into a calendar month doesn't change the physical properties of the moon itself, so the color remains the same".

What is a blue moon?

The upcoming Blue Moon will later be visible to the west as it's about to set.
