Blue moon: Where to watch Saturday's full moon, why is it special

Theres Going to Be a Blue Moon Tomorrow Blue moon: Where to watch Saturday's full moon, why is it special

There are many alternative names for the March Moon, depending on the Native American tribe and region.

The complete blue sap moon will not show up in some components of the nation. The Blue Moon on March 31 will be the second Blue Moon of 2018 and the last one until October 31, 2020.

The moon doesn't really turn blue on a blue moon.

"The last time we've seen two blue moons within three months was in 1999", said AccuWeather astronomy blogger Dave Samuhel. The traditional definition of a Blue Moon was reserved for the third full moon in a season that has four full moons, which happens in years that have 13 full moons instead of the usual 12.

An airplane flies in front of the Blue Moon of January 31, 2015.

So, we are calling this second full Moon in March the "Full Sap Moon".

Blue moons look pale grey and white and indistinguishable from any other moon. "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". Initially, a blue moon described the 4th moon in a period, after the term was incorrectly utilized in a radio program in 1980 it was approved as the 2nd moon of the month, inning accordance with Skies & Telescope. When ash plumes from an erupting volcano fill the sky, particles strongly scatter red light, allowing blue light that acts like a blue filter pass through the ash clouds.

When can I see the blue moon? Spring and fall begin on equinox while summer and winter start during the solstice. However, NASA confirmed that since most months have 30 or 31 days it is possible to have two full moons appear in a single month.

If weather conditions are clear, the full moon should sit high on the sky for the naked eye to see clearly.

The last blue moon sighting was on January 31st, which was the super blue moon lunar eclipse!

The reason why March is now boasting two full moons has to do with the fact that February only had 28 days this year.

The super moon phenomenon happens when the full moon coincides with the closest point of the moon's orbit to earth.

This year, March is showing us an interesting astronomical event - the Blue Moon. It will peak at around 8:37 a.m.
