The last Blue Moon in 2018 shone bright for skywatchers around the world on March 31. On March 31 we saw a full moon which was very bright and awesome, that is called Blue Moon. We are running to say that it is the second and final Blue Moon of this year. According to earthsky.org “Two Blue Moons in one year seem to belie the idea that once in a Blue Moon indicates something rare. It’s true that, in recent years – with more than one definition for Blue Moon – Blue Moons seem to happen pretty often.
We have already witnessed a Blue Super Blood moon on January 31. This was a rare phenomenon that had happened the last month.
So, as we know a full moon can be only once in a month, but when it is happened twice in a month it is called unusual phenomenon. The very bright example is the Blue Blood moon.
This article will provide you interesting information about our astronomical calendar, that is going to happen.
The meaning of a full moon.
Every 29,5 days we witnessed the full moon’s face, and each month’s full moon has a unique name. This view happens when the earth comes between the sun and the moon.
Below you can read about the completed list of upcoming full moons, the dates: when they are going to fall on.
On January 31, we will witness a very rare phenomenon: “A Super Blue Moon”. The event will combine 3 phenomena at the same time: a blue moon, a super moon, and a total lunar eclipse. It will appear for the first time in 150 years and we will see a massive Super moon which will be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than usual. Super moon happens when the moon is at its closest approach to Earth, that’s why the moon’s orbit is oval shaped and not a circle.
The Moon has phases because it orbits Earth, which causes the portion we see illuminated to change. The Moon takes 27.3 days to orbit Earth, but the lunar phase cycle (from new Moon to new Moon) is 29.5 days. The Moon spends the extra 2.2 days “catching up” because Earth travels about 45 million miles around the Sun during the time the Moon completes one orbit around Earth.
On June 23 fans of the nature observed the colorful astronomical phenomenon – the supermoon. This day being in the full phase Moon passed a perigee. By data, the distance of the supermoon made 356 991 kilometers that on 27 thousand kilometers is closer, than usually. At this time the visibility of a disk of the Moon was 14% higher, and reflective ability grew by 30%. During the next supermoon it will be possible to observe star approximations to Earth on August 10, 2014. The “SuperMoon” term is very young – for the first time it applied to the characteristic of a perigee, which passed in the spring of 2011. The similar phenomenon is observed each one and a half years and is capable to cause different natural disasters or even unusual behavior of people. However, the majority of scientists is rejected by such assumptions and calls them prejudices.
This Super Moon will occur on March 19 when it is in its closest position to the earth this year.Full Moons in general can cause havoc, and this one for sure will not go unnoticed by anyone.Get ready for what could be moderate to severe weather patterns, increased seismic activity, tsunamis and more volcanic eruptions than normal. This phenomenon includes the days leading up to March 19 and the days after until around March 22nd. We experienced extreme weather conditions under the last Super Moons in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2005.
