Have you heard of the Black Moon before? (not Black Moon Lilith). It is when 2 new moons occur in the same month. There will be one on April 30, 2022.
The third big astronomical event of the year is the only one that cannot be seen, even with the help of a telescope. The term ‘blue moon’ has become popularized in recent years to describe the second full moon in a calendar month, even though the moon does not turn blue in color.
Apri 30’s ‘black moon’ is the counterpart to the blue moon, used to describe the second new moon of the month. New moons cannot be observed, as it is the time when the illuminated side of the moon is facing away from the Earth.
Although the black moon cannot be spotted in the sky, this is a good time of the month for stargazing as there is no natural light pollution from the moon, giving skywatchers darker views of the cosmos.
