The phenomenon occurs again in North America on July 31 – the first of 2016. The rest of the world will have to wait until August 30.
But what does that even mean? Why is it important? Here's everything you need to know about this astronomical event.
But the black moon also refers to a month where there are no new moons ̵
What will I see during a black moon?
Honestly, probably nothing.
The black moon is really just a new moon, the only real meaning is the second one. So you won't even see the moon because it will merge with the sky. The moon will also be a super moon, which means that the moon will look bigger than usual because it is closer to Earth, but since it is a new moon, you still won't be able to see it really.
If you want that experience to sound even cooler, you could call it "the black super moon." best in late summer. So if you can get out of the city and its light pollution, you will be in luck.
