Rare black moon Wednesday offers exceptional skygazing chance

Without the illumination of the moon on Wednesday night- due to a black supermoon- it will be easier for skywatchers to stargaze and view meteor showers Rare black supermoon will make stargazing incredible Wednesday night

However, this odd celestial event might be hard to watch, since the moon will be nearly invisible in the night sky.

North America will experience a black moon Wednesday night, a phenomenon that only occurs every couple of years, said Nick Ferreri, the planetarium fellow at the Museum of Science. The moon waxes until it becomes a full moon, when the moon's surface is fully illuminated, then wanes until it becomes a new moon again.

But a black moon also refers to a month where there are no new moons - which is only possible in February because of its fewer days.

Although there is no one single definition of a black Moon, according to Time and Date, it is most commonly used to represent the second new moon of a month.

If you live in the Western Hemisphere, the new moon occurring on July 31 at 11:13 p.m. EDT will be a black moon. The moon is also going to be a supermoon, meaning the moon will appear bigger than usual because it's closer to the Earth, but because it's a new moon you still won't be able to really see it. The weird part about the black moon is that skywatchers won't get a bright lunar view, since it will blend in with the night sky. Eastern Hemisphere skywatchers have to wait a bit: This new moon will go into effect after 12 a.m. on August 1.

The moon's orbit around the earth is not a flawless circle but more of an elliptical. It doesn't reflect any of the sun's light because the moon is lined up between the Earth and the sun.

In addition to being the second of two new moons, according to EarthSky, Black moons can also describe when there is no full moon at all during a month - an even rarer occurrence that takes place about once every 10 years.
