The other night we had a high school football game that was accentuated by an awesome full moon. This football Friday is going to be different!

Sometimes you stumble on cool, eerie stuff. When I saw the headline, Black Moon Rising it caught my attention. What the heck is a Black Moon?

according to

The final day of September will bring a rare lunar event that hasn't occurred since March of 2014, a Black Moon.

The term Black Moon has several definitions, but one of the most common definitions is the second new moon in a calendar month. This is similar to the well-known Blue Moon, which is the name given to the second full moon in a calendar month.

Since it is a new moon, it will not be a visible event as the side of the moon that is illuminated will be facing away from the Earth.

The last time that two new moons fell in the same month was March of 2014.

So Friday night, while your out 'howling at the moon' you'll have to look extra careful in order to make sure you're pointed in the right direction. It's a Black Moon Friday coming up!
