  • There's Going to Be a Blue Moon Tomorrow (and Here's What It Means for Your Mental State)

For those who wanted to see an aqua-hued orb, sorry but the term "Blue Moon" has nothing to do with the color. Roots start to push their way up through the soil, and the Earth experiences a re-birth as it awakens from its winter slumber. The Blue Moon is also nicknamed as a "Sap Moon" by Native American tribes as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow, and annual tapping of maple trees begins.

So, we are calling this second full Moon in March the "Full Sap Moon". The moon appeared blue because of all the dust the volcano lofted into the air. And this year, February did not have a full moon. Though as the name suggest, the moon won't completely be blue. Then it was possible to observe the rare "bloody blue superlow": "blue Moon" coincided with the full moon and full lunar Eclipse.

This isn't the first Blue Moon we've seen in 2018. Enjoy tonight's spectacle, because the next Blue Moon won't happen until October 31, 2020. The phenomenon last took place in 1999 and it won't happen again until 2037. The next Blue Moon to grace the sky won't be visible until 2020, Space.com reported yesterday.

This year, the night skies of Easter Holiday will be greeted by the second Blue moon of the year.

All dates and times are Eastern Time. So it's unusual to have two full moons in a 30- or 31-day month.

First Quarter: March 24, 11:35 A.M. The March Blue Moon has one more meaning that not many people may be familiar with. Since it takes about 29.5 days for the moon to complete its cycle (an interval known as a "synodic" month), this year the entire month of February passed in between full moons.
