A rare “Black Moon” will appear in the sky Friday night.
A black moon happens when there are two New Moons in the same month.
It happens only once about every 32 months.
The irony of the Black Moon is that you won’t necessarily see it.
A New Moon occurs every month, as part of the moon’s cycle of phases.
It’s the phase when the moon isn’t visible at all, as the moon will be in shadow.
Friday night’s officially takes place at 8:11 p.m. on the East Coast.
Contrary to a Black Moon, a “Blue Moon” is when two Full Moons are seen during the same calendar month.
