  • Black Moons are defined as the second of two new moons in one month
  • They can also describe when there is no new moon in a month

A rare phenomenon known as a & # 39; black moon & # 39; floats across the sky in North America tomorrow.

The Black Moon, similar to a new moon, last occurred in North America in 2016 and is defined as the second new moon in one month – an event that usually only takes place in leap years.

Depending on the coast where you are, the Black Moon will take place on July 31 (for those on the east coast) or August 1, meaning it is the second of two new moons or the first of two.

According to the second of two new moons, according to EarthSkyBlack moons can also describe when there is no full moon at all during a month – an even rarer event that takes place approximately once every 10 years.

A final description also defines a Black Moon as the third new moon in a season of four New Moons.

Although there is no real difference between a black moon and an ordinary new moon other than the fact that it occurs for the second time in a single month, the confluence of other lunar factors will make the phase of tomorrow remarkable in other ways.

EarthSky notes that tomorrow's new moon is also a super moon, meaning that it will happen along with a moon-like star – the closing point to Earth in its monthly orbit.

Black Moon & # 39; s can in principle be synonymous with New Moons, but according to EarthSky the moon confluence of tomorrow night will have a drastic impact on tides.

WHEN WILL THE & # 39; BLACK MOON & # 39; TO HAPPEN?

In North American and American time zones, the new moon will occur at different times, depending on the coast.

On July 31:

  • 11:12 pm EDT
  • 10:12 AM CDT
  • 9:12 PM MDT
  • 8:12 PM PDT
  • 7:12 PM AKDT
  • 5:12 PM HRT

On 1 August:

As a result, the moon will have a major impact on tides. According to EarthSky, the proximity of the moon is likely to correlate in extra-large jump times where the discrepancy between ebb and flow is particularly large.

They are in contrast with & # 39; neap tides & # 39; which are characteristic of lunar phases in the first quarter and which show very little discrepancy between ebb and flow.

Unfortunately, although the tidal effects can be large, the visual footprint will certainly be less.

The Black Moon will, just like a new moon, merge into the sky, which means that darkness is its characteristic visual characteristic.

As noted by CNNhowever, dark skies – especially those not infiltrated by the light of the moon – are perfect for other types of stargazing.

For those with the right equipment, the Melkweg is best seen in the summer.
