    A Rare Black Moon Is Gracing Our Skies This Friday

    This September ends with the eerily named black moon rising.

    ...So you’re probably wondering what a black moon is. It actually has a few definitions. The one we’re using here is a second new moon in a calendar month –...which is the second full moon in a calendar month.

    … The new moon will officially occur at 8:11 p.m. EDT (5:11 p.m. PDT) on Friday in the Western Hemisphere. And it’ll take a few more nights before the moon in crescent form really starts to show, according to ScienceAlert.

    IN MY OPINION:

    The news is also reporting that Hurricane Matthew has strengthened to a category 5 and officials are tracking its path to prepare us for possible landfall. Also, the news is reporting a high number of earthquake activity in Southern California and based on what I've come to learn in the recent years, there happens to be a relationship to how our earth responds to certain alignments such as just recently happened in the month of September. There were two eclipses this past September 2016 and this may have a bearing on our weather systems going on this autumn season. I am hoping that everyone will be safe.

    I'm looking forward to viewing this Phenomenon.

    A dark moon describes the Moon during that time that it is invisible against the backdrop of the Sun in the sky. The duration of a dark moon is between 1.5 and 3.5 days, depending on the orientation of the Earth and Sun.
