The moon will not seem blue in color, however it is one of the sky highlights of August
Assuming you need to get a glimpse of a rare, full “blue moon,” this end of the week might be your lone opportunity for a couple of years, as indicated by NASA.
Although the moon will not really be blue in color, researchers say “blue moon” signifies this moon is the subsequent full moon in a month that has two full moons.
This only happens about once every 2.7 years, on average, CNN reports.
“As the third full Moon in a season that has four full Moons, this will be a Blue Moon by the older definition,” NASA said in an explanation.
To see the full “blue moon,” simply make a point to gaze toward the sky around 12:04 a.m., Sunday, when the moon will arrive at its highest point, NASA said.
You’ll have the option to see the moon without a telescope obviously, however for best review, it might prove to be useful.
The following full “blue moon” is slated for Aug. 19, 2024, as indicated by EarthSky.
Yet, the following not many months will in any case be astounding for skywatchers, as Jupiter and Saturn will become visible, as indicated by NASA.
“Both will appear to shift toward the west over the coming months, making them visible earlier in the evening sky (and friendlier for backyard stargazing, especially if you have young ones with earlier bedtimes),” NASA said.
