The Second Blue Moon from this March is Associated with the Easter

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

Stargazers are in for a visual treat as a full Blue Moon has risen in the skies this evening.

The second blue moon of the year will light up the sky Saturday (March 31).

When two full Moons occur in a single calendar month, the second full Moon is called a Blue Moon.

An alternative name for March's full Moon is the Full Sap Moon, as this is the time of year when the sap of sugar maples starts to flow. So, to make up for this lack, March ended up with an extra full moon.

The previous double blue moon took place in 1999; the next will be in 2037, Travel and Leisure reports. Also, February, which has only 28 or 29 days (during leap years), will never have a Blue Moon. It will set at 7:34 a.m. on Sunday, the 1st of April, in the Big Apple and at 7:37 a.m.in the casino city.

Trump targets Amazon over taxes
Supreme Court to let state and local governments collect billions of dollars in sales taxes from online retailers. President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that Amazon was causing "tremendous loss" to the Post Office.

The fourth full moon of the year is also known as a sap moon, because it marks the time of year sap is harvested from trees, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac. Firstly, this weekend's celestial event is the last chance for sky watchers to witness a Blue Moon for the next couple of years. NASA says this particular event probably generated the phrase "Blue Moon," but volcanoes aren't the only reason a moon can look blue.

Full moons aren't exactly rare. Enjoy tonight's spectacle, because the next Blue Moon won't happen until October 31, 2020.

For those who wanted to see an aqua-hued orb, sorry but the term "Blue Moon" has nothing to do with the color. The moon appeared blue because of all the dust the volcano lofted into the air.

The monthly blue moon is the second full moon in a month with two full moons. Yes, we know, people love to give Moons names!

However, Blue Moons aren't that uncommon. The moon will be visible in United Kingdom at 7:30pm.
