Not a blue moon but the same idea

Tomorrow's black Moon will also be a supermoon, which means the new Moon happens at the closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.

A unusual phenomenon acknowledged as a "black moon" will hover throughout skies in North The usa tomorrow. The resulting darkness will provide the flawless opportunity to spot some stars - so make sure you have your camera at the ready. Here's everything you need to know about this astronomical event.

What is a Black Moon? Yep, black moon sounds way better!

It's just a more interesting name for the second new moon of the month.

A Black Moon supermoon will occur on Wednesday, July 31, 2019, which begins with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean around 6:00 a.m.

The term Black Moon is also used to describe the third new moon in a season of four new moons. New moons are separated by 29.5 days but most months are 30 or 31 days long - so it is possible to fit two new moons in a single month occasionally. This type will next take place in the United Kingdom on August 30, 2019. The first new moon happened on July 2. During this phase, the moon is not visible to the eye and occurs when the sun's light falls on the far side of the moon we don't see. The rest of the planet will see the black Moon on August 30. So you won't even see the moon, because it will blend in with the sky.

The moon's orbit around the earth is not a ideal circle but more of an elliptical.

However, there are actually two types of Supermoon.

The next full moon, called the "sturgeon moon", will rise on August 15.

Making the celestial happening all the more intriguing is that this black moon comes when the moon is near its closest point to our planet along its orbit of Earth (the orbit is not a flawless circle).

This year, the United Kingdom will also see three super new moons occur on August 1, August 30 and September 28.

However, Super New Moon are admittedly less exciting for amateur astronomers because it is invisible from Earth.
