A Rare Black Moon Will Rise In the Sky on Friday Night

A Rare Black Moon Will Rise In the Sky on Friday Night

The dark moon, coming after a "ring of fire" was witnessed on September 1, has set many tongues wagging over God's wrath. The only time astronomers will really be found using these pop culture terms is when they're discussing how tracking the moon's phases became so popular on Twitter.

A few days after the Black Moon, a small silver slit will begin to appear, as the crescent moon starts to build.

The lunar calendar nearly lines up with Earth's calendar year, so there is typically one full moon and one new moon each month. Those who believe that rare celestial events can somehow foreshadow the end of the world are taking to social media in order to make their cases. During a full moon, the entire disc is visible. One thing to note about a black moon is that you can not see much of it, since the moon will be darkened.

Joe Rao from Space.com explained: "A second full moon in a single calendar month is sometimes called a blue moon". That being said, it is virtually impossible to see a Black Moon.

What is the Black Moon?

. This occurs twice each month, according to NOAA.

However, the eastern region may also observe a Black Moon around Halloween. Berman said he is not sure where this definition originated. Instead, it usually refers to the second full moon in a month.

Last year, Londoners witnessed a rare ' Blood Moon ', when the eclipse corresponded with a "supermoon", giving the moon a red tint across its surface. It is the opposite of a blue moon, which is the second full moon in one calendar month.

The Black Moon shares a similarity with the Blue Moon. So the synodic cycle is when the moon meets the sun.

On September 30, the face of the moon will become nearly completely shaded, as its orbit takes it between the Earth and the sun.

Wiccans consider a Black Moon a special time when their rituals, spells and other workings are considered to be more powerful and effective.

New Moon officially takes place at 8:11 p.m. EDT on September 30.
