Full 'Blue Moon' to appear in sky on Saturday

Full 'Blue Moon' to appear in sky on Saturday”

A Blue Moon is now defined as the occurrence of two full moons in the same calendar month.

Something special to see early Saturday-the last Blue Moon until Halloween night 2020. The next blue moon will be October 31st, 2020; imagine the Halloween moon hype we will have to deal with.

The blue moon of March or the Sap moon is considered significant.

If you're a fan of lunar events, be ready.

The first moon of the month gets the name "full worm moon" because it appears around the time that earthworms begin to come out of the ground during the spring season.

While this is not "super" nor "blood", it's still rare to have two full moons in one month hence "blue" moon. The blue colour is dependent on atmospheric factors like when the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size.

The full blue sap moon won't be visible in some parts of the country.

Both an actual blue appearing moon and a second full moon within one month are both uncommon. For 2018, there are two full moons in January, and there are also two in March in most time zones. February only had 28 days, so it did not have a full moon this year, and the lunar occurrence spilled over to the following month.

The moon will appear full both Friday and Saturday nights.

The full moon on March 31, 2018, officially reaches a maximum at 8:37 a.m. EDT as it rises.

In addition to being the second full moon of March, the Full Sap Moon is the second Blue Moon of the year.
