Black Supermoon 2019 USA: What time will Black Super Moon peak tonight?

Black Moons occur every two to three years, but they can happen at different times in different locations.

A rare black moon will make an appearance on either July 31 or August 1, depending on your global location.

Black Moon's might be basically synonymous with New Moons, but according to EarthSky, tomorrow night's lunar confluence will have a drastic impact on tides.

A black moon is a name given to the second new moon that takes place in one month. That means that sometimes you might have more full moons than usual during a season or even during a month. While the rest of the planet won't experience the magic of this celestial event tonight, they will be able to do so on August 30. This is less common than the other type of black moon, and occurs about once a decade.


In the past month, the Ukrainians were able to observe the full moon, which is popularly called the strawberry Moon. The moon waxes until it becomes a full moon, when the moon's surface is fully illuminated, then wanes until it becomes a new moon again.

"However, the fact that you can't see the Moon allows you to see the stars, planets, and the Milky Way better".

Though there isn't one single definition of a black Moon, based on Time and Date, it's mostly used to characterize the second new Moon of a month.

This black Moon will also be a supermoon as it coincides at the closest point to Earth in its elliptic orbit, which results in a particularly large moon as viewed from Earth.


What does a Black Moon look like?

Crank up the Bauhaus, and put on your finest black velvet cape, because tonight, the most goth moon imaginable is coming to the night sky. In Feb may not be new moon because of the shortened month.

How do you see it?

Well, nothing. During its new moon phase, our celestial neighbor appears black, as the sun's light shines on the side that doesn't face Earth.
